How can I make my FindingService findItemsByProduct API call work for items outside of the USA?

Here is a call to the eBay API to find items by EAN (similiar to UPC):

 

http://svcs.ebay.com/services/search/FindingService/v1?OPERATION-NAME=fi....@type=EAN&productId=5050582929393

 

Notice that it doesn't find any items. But when I manually go to http://www.ebay.co.uk and search for the term "5050582929393", items show up. In fact, even one of the items has the EAN field filled with 5050582929393.

 

How can I make sure the API is calling for items worldwide???
