And distributing games or some kind of games is illegal in some countries
(e.g. I've read that card and dice games are considered betting in some
Muslim countries, and the status of non-child-safe games or even not
certified child-safe games is dubious in other, even Western, countries),
some countries ban Internet use, so web browsers, e-mail clients and even
updating software might be a problem etc. We're left with nothing to ship
if we remove everything banned in some country.
