+ - Ask Slashdot: What are the technology hurdles in a US to Canada move? 1

toupsz (882584) writes "Considering how many "geek" technologies are now tied to accounts and subscriptions, can anyone speak to the hurdles involved in a (potentially permanent) US to Canada move? Since, presumably, licensing rules, pricing structures, etc. will be different, should I wholesale change my accounts? Leave some of them with a US address (of a trusted family member)?

By "'geek' technologies tied to accounts", I am thinking about things such as Dropbox, Netflix, Hulu, smartphone plan, iTunes, iCloud, Xbox Live, etc., etc., etc. Will various forms of DRM on games, apps, music, and movies fail? How much is tied to where your account officially lies and where it shows up by IP address (say when streaming a movie)?"
