That way ncix its not in violation of international law and couldn't be enforced.If it says only ships to us and canada and mexico for instance then sol. Technically the key word is "eu member" and "can only be enforced if applies to international law"
Kinda like when the site says does not ship to quebec etc.

In that situation it was to avoid viloating Quebec language law by simply not doing business with them.

No...

There seems to be a lot of misinformation on the net.
And reading through the actual law doesn't help much unless one has hours or days to study that.

The law definitely doesn't apply to EU citizens that don't live in the EU zone.
How would NCIX (as an example) even know that you have EU citizenship?

The law applies to companies/organizations that deal with EU residents

Oh your an eh? and...... ewhh! Then. (pro·nun·ci·a·tion of EU).

Which coincidentally is what your lawyer would say if you tried. Eh? and ewhhh I don't think so.
