    I may live in the US but I still agree, this site seems to global for that rule.

      There are laws that govern sweepstakes, contests, and such. (Consider what might be considered to be gambling, taxes issues, contracts, etc.) It would likely be an impossible mess to create a contest that encompassed international laws as well.
