There is now an official Petition to re-work the obnoxious WEEE implementation in Germany (see my detailed posting earlier in this blog. This is good, and definitely a step forward in getting regulations in place which are supportive of small and medium-sized companies, rather them getting them out of business. I've spoken to lawyers about the current regulations, and they e.g. have severe doubt that they are even constitutional.
If you are German, and/or operate a business in Germany, please consider signing the above-mentioned petition!
btw: I'm planning to start a petition against hosting petitions of the German Bundestag at a University in the UK, anybody interested in joining it?
