Today’s modern communications media have eliminated numerous barriers, but many Danish companies still prefer to deal with an established local agent or distributor, rather than buying directly from abroad. In many cases, this is based on a preference for, or even a requirement to have, a responsible, legal entity in Denmark supplying the product. The Danish agent/distributor community has developed over centuries and is today a select and competitive group of businesses. Many sectors are dominated by a few powerful and quite conservative companies, which have spent decades establishing lasting relationships with their clients. ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

Google Answers: How are radio and TV stations reaching "info-lusters"?
How are commercial television and radio stations reaching out to "info-lusters" -- i.e. people (usually type-A personalities) for whom too much information is never enough. These are people who listen obsessively to the local all-news radio station in the car, while they type on their Blackberry, and chat on their cell phone, etc. I am trying to make a case that there are new emerging groups of media consumers, and that broadcasters need to "think outside the box" (sorry) to reach them more effectively.
