If FIC are smart they will sell to the EU citizens from an EU address.
This will make the customs clearance and warranty problems disappear,
as EU has the same minimum standards for warranty (see
http://www.euroconsumer.org.uk/index/consumer_centres.htm) and no
customs for goods internally in EU.
I also would expect FIC already has at least one distributer in EU
that can cover all of EU. From a shipping cost perspective it will
probably make sense, too.
I would expect the same setup would go for US.
The rest of the world will probably have to deal with the mess.
