Yeah if it does not come from an Authorized Canon dealer they will not work on them.
Edit: This is why you have to provide proof of purchase for warranty work.
But, we're not talking about warranty work.
I know we've strayed way, way off-topic, but how would Canon know that you didn't buy from an Authorized Canon Dealer? B&H sells grey market items and they're authorized. I have always been under the impression that grey market affected one's ability to get warranty work completed, not out of warranty work.
There's no need to send a receipt or proof of purchase for out-of-warranty work.
For all Canon or any other manufacturer knows, I could have purchased the item while living in country A, moved to country B and now need service.
