So people in developing nations should pay the same price for Office, Windows or other software to support this Utopian view of competition? Aren't you then pricing many things out of their reach and further penalizing people in these markets?
Or they could sell it at a reasonable cost everywhere ...
Or the developing nations could create more expensive products and stop being a developing country (the main reason is anyway that being a developing country allows them to offer (too) cheap labor).
The main issue is changing mentality (It would lead to far and into taboo topics to explain.
