This is exactly what i thought. No real censorship, only ``children-protection''
BTW: what is exact definition of this law.
If its like : `you cant sell it to minors' then we can give it to minors
for free (ftp access is free) and piss at *.gov.de
Else, mirrorers will have to add disclaimer :
`You have to be 18 to download some of this software bla bla bla bla'

And what with Brazil ? Is there full ban or only ``children-protection'' ?
