But the OP here is talking about discrimination INSIDE the EU.
As a Brit, I should be able to go to *ANY* EU web site and buy stuff off it. Here he says that doesn't work for rail tickets. I'm inclined to agree that that is a breach of the Trade Directives.
There are problems, however, like liability etc. Are your legal rights that of your state, or the state of the vendor, or what? There's VAT problems on customer sales ... (think of the booze cruisers for a very good example :-)
The Free Market is badly distorted by taxes and stuff even within the EU. Until they sort that out, it'll be hard to have free and fair intra-EU cross-border trade.
