Microsoft Licensing Question Visual Studio 2010

My company recently purchased Visual Studio 2010 professional.  The disc says "Not for use or distribution outside of North America or Latin America."  I assume this refers only to the development software, not to any deployment projected developed and sold for use in other countries.  

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Your impression is correct.. That particular media can only be sold in the Americas.  There are no not-for-export restrictions on the completed project. And you OWN the copyright on the completed project.. The license also is per user for the Visual Studio Product.
