International Download Apps From Amazon Appstore

I have just received the following email from Amazon's customer service in regard to its Kindles' apps:

"Yes the Bloomberg App is compatible with Kindle Fire, however because you are not based within the United States you will not be able to download apps. I'm so sorry about this inconvenience.

Here are the requirements that are required to able to download apps from Amazon Appstore:

Unfortunately, Amazon Instant Video content can only be purchased by customers connecting to the Internet from a location in the United States (specifically the 48 contiguous states, Alaska, Hawaii, and the District of Columbia). A U.S. credit card with a U.S. billing address must be used to purchase videos."

Can someone please explain why Amazon has these restrictions? In the modern world of internet connectivity, why should such restrictions be made? Moreover, none of Amazon's major competitors, the IPone, for example, does not have such restrictions.
