This was covered in another post, but the long and short of it is that Alot of other countries abide by US Patent Law. Regardless of their Patent rules though, any company who wishes to sell products in the US, either directly or through a distributer, are subject to US Patent Law. If the US Courts determine that a Product violates US patent laws, then that product cannot be distributed in the US untill it complies.

This has already been brought up in numerous other threads. Go to the legalities forum.
