Why does Visa exclude so many countries from its SDK license?

 

Excluded from License

Andorra, Austria, Bear Island, Belgium, Bulgaria, Channel Islands, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Faeroe Island, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Greenland, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Isle of Man, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Vatican City, United Kingdom, including the possession and territories thereof.

 

If you are in these countries, you can't use the license.  If you distribute software, you can't use the license unless you make sure none of your customers are from these countries.  That means open source software can't use the SDK.

 

Our sailing club has an authorize.net account that we can't use, because open source software developers can't use Visa's SDK.
