The only answer here is that "we are not lawyers".  Going back to the
original question, it doesn't read to me like Andreas is either.  Now,
if some lawyers have technical questions in order to formulate some
advise, that's another matter.  But it doesn't matter all that much what
a bunch of engineers think the finer points of unspecified laws mean.
