This is, to me, inanity.   There are all sorts of laws in place in various jurisdictions about what may, or may not, be offered.

Even if there weren't, no company is required to do anything like Vispero is doing with this free offer.  It's up to them who the offer it to.  But they're far from the only company to offer something in certain markets and not others because of the legal (or other) gyrations.

You really need to understand that discrimination among, when circumstances are quite different and warrant different treatment, and discrimination against are not the same thing.
