the few times i have dealt with other memory vendors on
warranty items it was simple technologies that refused to
replace a dead memory part..
kingston was always ok..
goldenram (when they were known as MPM) replaced a memory
part with no questions asked, that had come as an add in
part in my first thinkpad.. a 700C..
crucial wants (so far) an invoice..
and will warrant only to the original purchaser..
FWIW, memory is so cheap these days its not worth the time
to worry about warranty..
just deal with a good vendor.. :-)

it's a product with a limited warranty period.

Kingston representatives that I spoke to in the past seem to
understand this. In fact, if you look at the Kingston
warranty page, the text you quoted ("you MAY [emphasis
added] return a defective product, freight prepaid and
insured, to the authorized Kingston dealer or distributor")
is permissive, not mandatory; it is followed by information
how to deal directly with Kingston.
