It’s not unusual for online services or content to be restricted to certain countries. Netflix and YouTube, for example, are notorious for such. Copyright and licensing negotiations are usually cited as the reasons behind those prohibitions. More controversial, however, are when such restrictions are put in place because of political reasons. Such is allegedly the case when EA, without very little warning, blocked access to its Origin games in the Southeast Asian country of Myanmar, later citing embargoes and sanctions imposed by the US against certain countries.
