Should Regions for ARCs still be a thing?

So far and yet so near…



As most of my readers know, I live in Israel. Because of this, sometimes when I request advance reader copies (or ARCs) of books from sites like NetGalley, publishers sometimes decline my requests. No, this isn't antisemitism or some nasty BDS "gotcha." The reason they give is that they don't have the rights to give out ARCs to locations outside their domain. Lately, however, I've been thinking this is a bit strange, and if you think about it, effectively outmoded, especially when it comes to people who review books for the Internet (remember, it is call the World Wide Web, because it connects all corners of the globe).
