I know. I wanted to start selling my own boards. But when I lookup up the requirements I just quit. Only the tax and income laws are a pain already.

...You don't understand what a pain in the butt it is to sell in Europe. I sell worldwide EXCEPT in the EU. I've yet to figure out precisely what I need to do to be compliant with RoHS, WEEE and CE, and every time I spend a few hours looking into it I get lost in a mess of bureaucracy, different rules for each country, etc etc. Unless you're doing a lot of selling in Europe, it just doesn't really seem worth the effort.
You are right.
And there is a big discrepancy between:
-the opportunity to do a sale
-the opportunity to not loose money, once the costs and efforts are retracted from that sale.

Most companies have very good reasons they don't sell particular items in particular regions.
There's also a big difference in sales potentials between a fabricant and a distributor.
And don't forget distributor contracts, many of them are forbidden to sell outside their region.

If you try and take a cat apart to see how it works, the first thing you have on your hands is a nonworking cat.

...As the saying goes, we deserve the government we elected.
They deserve the government they elected.
We deserve better.
