Why not go direct to the app author? Also, we are not limited to the Marketplace for apps (with exception of the ATT droids.)
I live in the Caribbean and use a myTouch 4g. Last month I noticed that an app on my phone, MSN droid, was no longer working. I checked and it was missing from the market so I assumed that it had been removed because it didn't comply with market rules.
On searching for an alternate messaging app, however, I found that quite a few apps were missing, including eBuddy. I searched for any news that eBuddy had been removed from the app market but nothing came up. As my frustration built I looked for other ways to download it. I've found that though I can view eBuddy on the android market site instead of the market app, when I try to download it a message comes up saying "this item cannot be installed in your country"
On further investigation I came across numerous threads, including this one in the android market forums, showing that many other international android users have the same problem with numerous apps. Apparently Google has done little to nothing about this situation so far. Does anyone knows what's going on?
