Well one distributor per continent, shipping too far can be expensive or
take too long. I know one for the US already as I've had them make me
USBs (I send a master, they clone it), it's the same place we did DVDs
historically, mixonic. The Barcelona team had an EU place that worked.

For Korea next year they should find something in Korea, Taiwan or Japan
- pretty good chance of finding something.
