I notice in the announcement and stuff that Deeze is available in the EU. Why is it not in the US? I ask because I am in MD and I have a Deezer.com account and listen to music through the website. Just curious.

When we provide a service in one place but not another, you can be sure
it's due to some legal or licensing. We'd be happy to provide anything out
there (and not have to care about who's allowed, who's not.

If this is confusing, then it's due the services not being sure themselves
:-).

As Michael says it's legal mumbo-jumbo craziness between the record co's, lawyers, and probably even certain country laws.

Same is true with Last.fm in Canada. In Canada they can use Last.fm on their computers without issue, but Last.fm (currently) cannot be streamed to an SD device in Canada.

Maybe the One World Order isn't such a bad idea in such instances. :)

Denmark is in the EU, so you have access to Deezer.

In theory Deezer should work, but apparently it doesn't at the moment. Devs please have a look here thanks:
