You guys realize that Google isn't trying exclude you from buying things right? Google is based in the US--so obviously that's a marketplace always open to them; but outside of a select number of easy-going foreign countries, there is an extremely
difficult process for making things available globally. Each territory has it's own regulations, policies, legal systems, and resistance to deal with. Negotiating licensing agreements with music, film, publishing,(etc.. ) industry giants is a difficultly that most of us cannot appreciate. It's ridiculous to think that Google doesn't want to sell as much of everything as possible, and that they wouldn't gladly take your money if they had the ability.
If you want to get mad and demand explanations from anywhere, it should be your government officials and/or the media companies that are resistant to digital marketplaces. The goal of most any business is to expand and reach as many people as possible. There isn't any conspiracy to keep devices and content out of your possession, and if things were as simple as you try to make them seem, you would have had access to these things a very long time ago.
