Just a question about the "Honesty Model": it talks about payment *after* downloading. However, it doesn't hold true for Minecraft, listed as an example: you need to pay before you get access to the full version. The free access to the classic version is no different than the shareware/demo model that's been being used for a long time.

are we allowed to mention that there's a weird thing going on regarding digital distribution in europe? like when amazon cd's/books and movies are available everywhere, but digital files are geoblocked due to license restrictions?

A paragraph on it couldn't hurt if you know the subject well. As long as the author sticks to the facts and avoids political commentary.
