Re: Routing public traffic across county boundaries in Europe

Yes, but laws dictate that not all information can be shared without restraint. The EU, for example, has laws preventing the export of personal information to countries deemed to have weaker privacy protection laws.
There's also grey areas (that may simply result from legal departments not having enough technical knowledge). For example, I've worked with companies before that have had the rights to stream certain sporting events to certain countries only. Even if you were only streaming to UK ISPs and UK IP addresses (via what ever checking mechanisms were deemed adequate), legal departments tend to have quite a lot to say on the matter if you were egressing that traffic, at say, AMS-IX.
