If Adobe products are sold in the UK, for instance, wouldn't that require acquiring some type of incorporation there, and then, complying with local business regulations, even hiring UK employees, having an agent of record to accept law suits, etc.?
If I go to Adobe Store 2 (Store 1 is for North America, I think), I am automatically redirected to Ireland, and the upgrade price for Acrobat 9 Pro is €189.00 without VAT; if you had to pay that in US$, it would cost approximately $285; of course, you would not do that, as the US price is $159. You get exactly the same package, a CD (or two) and a US-printed basic guide. On your incorporation question, it doesn't matter where the company is incorporated in the EU: it can trade in any EU country. It does matter to the company, as it will pay the corporation tax in that country—which is why a lot of companies selling Europe-wide choose Ireland.

It would still be complicated to sell in a lot of European countries if it weren't for the EU, just as it would still be in the American states if it weren't for the Union.

according to her version because she was actually Irish, but had married a Brit
That's a bit fishy, because under the UK Republic of Ireland Act 1948 (and a similar law in Ireland), British and Irish citizens are equally entitled to live and work in either country, and Irishmen could choose either citizenship in 1948.
