If you want to be 100% sure that you can not be sued under this law that
would be one way. The other way is to pay about 1000EUR and let people
from the USK(?) have a look at it. Ah and I guess for every change you
make you need a new certification.

Well my point is that I'm not willing to kick out nice free software
just because some mad politics. _I_ will not give away CDs to minors
cause of this law what you do is your decision. My personal advice
is to explain the situation and don't give away CDs to minors.
What you really do is beyond my possibilities to control.

Full ACK.


It really sucks to give your heart to a girl
You want to know her like she knows the whole world
But 10 seconds in, it's obvious, your going nowhere...
