(I also have a law degree here in America)
Sorry, you're right then, I only skimmed that thing and somehow jumped to the conclusion it was the Germans doing it (I swear I was never as sloppy when dealing with actual cases, but now that I'm not in the field anymore, I hope I can be given a bit of leeway ). And since I don't have deep knowledge of the US law, other than the general features, I'll leave such matters to you then
