Re: A multinational is a multinational.
"If the laws of region X and region Y are incompatible, it is going to have to choose which region it wants to do business with."
There are alternatives such as a franchise arrangements which would enable business to be conducted in both regions according to the local laws with the former multinational profiting from royalties. This assumes, of course, that the business is even legal in one of these regions. Selling other people's data presents a problem in this respect.
