Default Possibility of eBay being no longer available to Australia

Basically, there's talk about eBay geo-blocking Australia because of proposed changes to GST to protect local retailers (Harvey Norman, etc). The articles below might explain this better than I can.

My first thoughts; eBay is the first place I go if I want Takara Transformers (Legends, Masterpieces, etc), original G1 toys/parts, and anything else I can't find on retail. Without eBay, my options are severely limited. Also, instead of waiting for my birthday in August, I might need to buy that LG32 Chromedome I've been eyeing, before July if this geo-block is confirmed (which would be the worse case scenario)..

Just thought I'd share, and see what others think. Cheers.
