IMO best thing to do is to allow existing LA players to continue playing. I play and pay for Japanese MMOs and have still to be IP banned from one even when they do release a NA version.
They accepted the Latin Americans as they had no server to call "home." It's typical of the NA version to accept any region without a version of the game as part of their playerbase. However at the same time, games will frequently boot them out often because most will just stay at the NA one because of content advantages, starving the new version of a needed playerbase.

Ironically.... Latin America is a part of North America.
