International iPhone App Store distribution kaput?

One developer discovers that his iPhone apps are not being consistently distributed to iTunes App Stores in different countries.

Apple, Inc.
Ipodnn.com is reporting an iTunes App Store problem that could directly impact iPhone application developer income. According to ipodnn.com:

The international distribution of iPhone applications is not being handled properly at the App Store, one developer tells MacNN. Having launched a title called CameraUFO, Magno Urbano says he recently visited the US App Store to verify if his software was on sale. Although not at its main intended venue, the app could be found at a number foreign stores, though still not all of them.

According to the piece, the developer has reported the problems to Apple, but no solution has been offered as of this article. According to the developer, "many developers could be losing substantial amounts of revenue."
