In some countries, namely mostly of the EU, is kinda illegal to say MSRP because the producer is forbidden to establish end user price.

That is why it is called MSRP. It stands for Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price, they are forbidden from establishing end user price, but nothing forbids them from suggesting end user price.;)

Some manufacturers do have ways of controlling the price, Garmin for example would release notices to it's official purchasers as to when price cuts were given. It stabilized the mainstream market but there are those few that buy a couple hundred units from these official purchasers and can turn them for cheaper on Ebay for less and who arn't accountable for the pricing guidelines.

Manufacturer's are definitely not forbidden on establishing end user pricing but they smart enough to get the highest price for the longest amount of time possible.

Just fyi, talks about MSRP, RRP are criminal offenses in EU as far as I know and if found in discussion between producer and retailer/resseller by regulatory bodies it's hell to pay: controls, investigations, interogations, computers/laptops impounded, communications overseen... all the works.

Depends what EU country, here they mention MRSP IN ads, also companies can print their own prices directly onto products, this actually stops retailers from selling their product for more than what it states on the pack.
