I guess I will try to participate and use the address of a friend who lives in the US...
Just because I needed a new tablet so hard =/
At first I was completely revolted because of this. Which is really revolting.

According to brazilian customs law, anything imported (doesn't matter if it's a gift or prize or bought) has a 60% tax if it's under U$500, and 100% tax if it's more expensive than U$500. Really, really sad... even if you win one of those amazing Wacom tablets you would have to pay a lot in the end.
