|iTunes Japan rant

I think we should start a petition... not one at some lame site that does them en masse... but somehow do one to force Apple/iTunes to let users purchase music from an international version of the iTunes catalog.|
-_-; They recently launched iTunes in Japan. I figure since it's become hard for me to find Japanese music to download (albums preferably) nowadays... that buying them on iTunes is always cheaper than buying in a store, and definitely cheaper x2 when you minus shipping. :\
I don't think it should matter what label they're on. Seriously... The country-restriction thing in regards to iTunes and DVDs is a fucking joke... They're still getting $$$, why does it matter?
The Apple website does have this, though: http://www.apple.com/feedback/itunes.html Basically you can send them feedback (aka demand) to add Japanese and other foreign artists to the US catalog. I think it's ridiculous they don't all just share the same catalog, of course personalizing the main page on iTunes for a user of a specific country.
