Germany had planned to introduce new rules for the Internet (named JMStV) with the beginning of the new year. Every website should have been labeled with an age limit. If you run a website where you think it's for 16 or 18 year olds, then even had to implement some costly age verification and even take the website offline during the day. (Yes, so that children won't see it when they are awake. Politicians at work).
This was the cause of a huge outcry, because physically, this would have destroyed the whole "german" internet. People even had started taking offline their websites because they would not be able to afford lawsuits which obviously would have followed by sneaky lawyers trying to exploit that law. Also I considered taking offline some of my hobby sites, although living in Austria.
But anyway, the law now never made it
(german link). Not because the law made no sense - of course not - but because some standard-If-you-dont-then-I-dont-either quarrel.
Anyway, it looks like we are safe, for now.
