I'd like to get the Star
like to get the Star Wars Insider, but it says I can't get it
in my country. Is there anything else I can do?

Star Wars Site!

The situation involves business decisions and
fairness to our other licensees. There are now official Star Wars
magazines published in the U.S., England, France, Germany, Spain,
Mexico, and Italy. By contract, the international magazines must
contain a certain percentage of Insider material along with
locally-originated material. As with other licensees, we grant
certain territorial rights to the magazines. Just recently, Insider
has been granted rights to sell subscriptions worldwide except in
those few territories that have been granted to the other national
magazines. However we are encouraging Insider and the other
magazines that so desire to work out an arrangement under which the
international magazines can make Insider available for sale,
and Insider can offer the international magazines. We hope
that this can happen sometime this year.
