Copyright Harms Australia Again

                             Amazon (AUD)  Booktopia  Australians Ripped off by
The Wealth of Networks: Ho...   $15.63     $27.80         78%

   Ajax: The Definitive Guide   $36.19     $66.75         84%

Star Wars Clone Wars Chara...   $13.27     $23.40         76%

                        Heads   $14.06     $19.95         42%

So, for example, the best price from Booktopia in Australia is 1.78 times the US price of the Wealth of Networks book when expressed in AUD, or Australians pay 78% more for the book.

Prices exclusive of delivery.  Delivery is calculated differently, but price is roughly equivalent, with longer nominal delivery time for Amazon (weeks vs days).

I also looked up the first two in the Nile and emporium books but the prices were slightly more expensive.
