i dont think we would have ever gotten approval in phillipines. from my understanding the corruption and other evil at play there made it very very unlikely. I believe while we had a nice story of being used by the family of the president or ex-president we didnt have a shot because CYDY isnt a company capable of greasing the right palms that is required in SE asia. We are not plugged into the graft and backdoor pathways that would have been required in a place like the phillipines. It was also much easier to sabotage us in the PI than here. A couple thousand dollars goes a long way in the right pockets to really damage a trial. My suspicions are the same in brazil.
We had a better shot at the EU. At least here and in the EU it takes a much more expensive and coordinated effort to put sand in the gears.
