I think that would work but I cannot guarantee that its not going to look at your IP but there are DNS servers you can use that mask your location. Maybe use that during registration?
Thank you for the Suggestion!

You cannot compare the price of Pro Tools to what you pay in rent. The software costs what it costs regardless of where you live. Even in USA, some people only pay $299 for monthly rent in some places like section 8 housing and many other places in the south while some people up North, out West or Washington DC can pay several THOUSAND a month and have very minimal square footage. You can't just be like, "oh my rent is $299, so Pro Tools should be cheaper". No, it doesn't work like that. The price is what it is. Now if they are doing the currency conversion incorrectly for where you live in SA, then that's one thing., and I'm sure their CS can straighten that out. But if the EURO conversion they are doing does in fact equate properly to your currency, then that is what you have to pay. Your monthly rent cost is completely irrelevant. Also, many goods are often quite more expensive in some parts of the world than others.

I don't understand this sentense but PT doesn't cost $1000 a month, it is $99 for a whole YEAR and with Euro conversion it is maybe $120 - $130 ish a YEAR which is very fair for this DAW !!

However we should NOT have to pay to be betatesters as members feel but as PT 12 works better for some people and worse for others Avid has a monumental task ahead to get all the new and old bugs sorted on all the different systems and configurations

Rent in Toronto ranges from $900ish for a basement apt to much more for better accommodations.
