I agree. It may be a bit of a logistical mess to move the offce somewhere else but the restriction is extremely un-user friendly for european gamers

It's kinda ridiculous to have such laws in place. Especially for Germany. As an American looking from the outside in, I'd think Germany would be more open minded considering they have such a highly educated populous.
