* Arms sales are big business, but subject to restriction by the military and government of the country a given weapons manufacturer is based in. There are lots of examples, which are generally in one of two categories; either the weapon/weapons platform is allowed to be sold with modifications (less effective electronic warfare systems, etc), or there is a complete ban on foreign sales (such as the F-22 and B-52 being US only aircraft).

** For the North American market, it will be upscale brand German station wagons and hatchbacks, and it is especially true for many high performance models. Since the US uses a completely incompatible vehicle safety standard from the rest of the world [[labelnote:note]]The US uses FMVSS crash test standard, where as rest of the world uses UN's ECE standards. Canada's CMVSS is largely similar to that of the FMVSS, with a few alterations that accepts ECE standard parts such as headlights.[[/labelnote]], therefore manufacturers are very selective about the vehicle models that the American market will receive. For example, neither the Audi RS 6 and the RS 3 hatchback were available in North America, but the mechanically identical fastback sedan RS 7 and the sedan version of the RS 3 are available. In general, the stigma attached to station wagons and hatchbacks [[note]]this term only covers traditional two-box hatchbacks, not the fastback-type hatchbacks with longer rear overhangs[[/note]] prevents manufacturers to export these vehicles to the North American market as they can't justify the cost for homologation with a low sales volume.

** Also regarding the Japanese market, it will be the American-style traditional giant pickup trucks that sold in the rest of world. Japan uses a set of completely incompatible vehicle standards from rest of the world, including eco-car tax reduction, [=NOx=] laws, and vehicle size measurements, to prevent any type of pickup trucks[[note]]In Japanese definitions, pickup trucks only cover traditional, bonnet-type trucks, not the cab-over trucks like 659cc ''keitorakku'' (micro trucks)[[/note]] from being sold in Japan. For example, neither Toyota Hilux nor Tacoma are sold in Japan, and Nissan Navara/Frontier pickup trucks are not offered in Japanese market despite being available elsewhere. In general, the Japanese consumers' aversion to pickup trucks also helped in putting an end to the pickup truck market in Japan.

** Taco Bell has made its way over to the UK. They ''did'' try to break into the UK market previously in the early 90s, with a few branches around Greater London, but it proved too unpopular to be profitable. According to ThatOtherWiki there are five in UK, and one is on an air-force base. Same goes for Wendy's, which was scattered around London in the 1980s.

* Blu-ray recorders (as in, [[RecycledInSpace a device like a VCR, except it uses recordable Blu-ray media and records in HD!]]) are at the moment only found in Japan, the UK, and countries with strict anti-monopoly laws like Australia, Hong Kong and New Zealand. This is probably caused by the devices' price range (Blu-ray writers still aren't cheap), and because of [[NewMediaAreEvil concerns over the rampant piracy that could result from their usage]] (Japanese over-the-air television does have DRM). But the more likely reason is because recorders using removable media have fallen out of favor due to the mass adoption of digital video recorders with hard drives (which are more convenient, and can easily handle HD video), as well as streaming services.
