I do have a question for you Andreas though. Are you the copyright holder on all the software you provide? If so how?
Copyright is fairly similar in most countries so no hiding behind a German law curtain.
I was just linked this thread, and haven't read it, nor have the time to do so now, though I may later. Admittedly, that puts me at something of a disadvantage, but I saw "copyright is fairly similar" and I think it's more similar than one might think because of the Berne Convention
. It does appear that Germany has signed it, whatever that may add to the conversation.
Also, in the US it is illegal to claim you have a copyright you don't actually have (it is an act of perjury). I'd be curious if the same is true in Germany. (Here is one article explaining the situation.)
