I've actually looked at some of the German decisions, and I didn't see
anything that would be a problem for DNSBLs

But if you're getting legal advice from the same wizard who told you
to do this:

>Confidential: Please be advised that the information contained in this
>email message, including all attached documents or files, is privileged
>and confidential and is intended only for the use of the individual or
>individuals addressed. Any other use, dissemination, distribution or
>copying of this communication is strictly prohibited.

I can understand why your impressions of the law would be so mistaken.
