    Well, after reading it, I guess they are doing it for PR. With all the hoopla about US jobs going overseas, they want to make it for for US only companies. I think even if a company is partly owned foreignly, then they are disqualified as well. I think that is too bad though, as there would be greater advances if it was available world wide.
