Re: Ebay (Was Re: Selecting vendors)

OK, here's my question:  What do manufacturers have to gain by this 
policy?  My guess is the MOTIF over there is pretty much the same 
hardware as the one over here, perhaps with a different display and 
Japanese OS.  That in itself might be a big enough pain in the ass to 
make a company not want to deal with it.  Could be that Yamaha Japan 
and Yamaha US are two totally different companies for legal reasons 
that are way beyond this boy.  Even though the gear could come from the 
same factory, I bet something screwy goes on like Yamaha Japan has to 
sell it to Yamaha US.
