@LocalzUK it can make geoblocking on firewalls etc a pain too.

We had a very security conscious customer with a sophos X type FW. It offers geoblocking based on a country by country basis.

"everything off apart from countries we do business with" was the cry. The reality was DOZENS of countries needing to be unblocked or you'd get periodical, random failures of MS office Products and an email from the sophos unit saying it was a blocked country.
