Does Farmers have the rights to Levi's?
Farmers is just where I would buy them But there is a NZ licensed company who has the rights to import Levis (whose name I don't know). Amazon specifically do not ship Levis to NZ because Levis have an agreement with that NZ importer. But they will ship to the YouShop US address and NZ Govt's YouShop service will deliver them to me. I'm not saying that's right or wrong, just the facts.
If they did then Amazon is in breach, and in all likelihood they would not ship to certain destinations. Even if they were in breach, Youshop isn't relevant that's just one of many costs in running a business. Shipping. Would you also blame blame SX Cable for MegaUploads copyriight file transfers?
Physical shipping is just one cost of delivery, but there are many other delivery costs that are common between physical importers and digital entertainment companies. e.g. staff, marketing, IT hardware etc. So Netflix US + UnlockUS can deliver me Breaking Bad cheaper than Sky NZ. In the Same way Amazon US + You Shop can deliver me the Levi's cheaper than NZ Importer + Farmers.
Again, I'm not saying these services are right or wrong. But to be consistent, it seems a stretch to provide and profit from YouShop and at the same time say geo-unblocking is illegal.
