I am not a german neither do i live there. This is nanog, not denog ;)

Ok and how many german blacklists are in use? There are reasons most of 
the blacklists are not based there. Its a silly story and you should 
focus on the ISP using the list and not some legal thing. Thats 
irrelevant here.

Technically i dont see any new points and stick to the old story.

Contact that ISP and negotiate with them.
Good luck.

bye,
Raymond.
