Anecdotal evidence only I'm afraid, but a couple of things stuck in my mind
about European expansion:

Language difficulties: eg: it's illegal to run english language banners in
France - they have an organisation which I believe is govt controlled that
exists purely to prevent the "anglicisation" of the francophile. (Le
shopping, le weekend etc - anyone else remember Tricolore at school?)

Cultural differences: Credit cards have an extremely low take up rate in eg:
Germany & Scandinavia, so businesses need to factor in options such as
invoicing/pre payment/COD.

Hi guys/gals

I'm writing a piece for Business 2.0, a 'new economy' title well known in
States, about the issues encountered when moving dot com ideas into
continental Europe.

If anyone has any stories about legal, commercial, or cultural differences
encountered between the UK and European mainland countries I'd love to talk
about it.

Any offers?
