Online petition

Nikon's latest DVD Creative Lighting System (hands-on guide) is only available in the US. A reader from Canada contacted Nikon on this matter and this is the response he got:

Hello xxxx, … It is not that Nikon Canada won’t sell the DVD, we can’t sell it as we do not have distribution rights. … Regards, xxxx.

What? I thought Nikon is a global company. In today's economic crisis it is hard for me to believe that they will pass on the extra revenue.

NikonRumors has readers from all over the world and I cannot accept the fact that they will not have access to this excellent product (I ordered mine already). Few days ago I started an online petition to distribute the Creative Lighting System (hands-on guide) world wide. It is very important to note that I (we) do not want to hurt the company we love, so let's make sure we keep it civilized and stick only to the online petition. I will try to contact Nikon and see if I can get an official response. Few other sites/blogs have also raised their concern on that topic - I will contact them to join this petition.

Anyway, sorry for the long post - here is the petition (facebook sign-up also available). Please sign it and spread the word - the direct petition link is:

Update: Strobist has expressed similar concerns about the distribution of this video.
Update #2: Please don’t post any bittorrent links. I do consider bittorrent illegal (not to mention unethical) and I will not host any related links. Thanks for your understanding.
