Zeta A new development in the Zeta legality issue: BeOSFrance says to have written confirmation from Jean-Louis Gassee that to JLG's knowledge, YellowTAB did not have an agreement with Palmsource [French]. My French isn't exactly what it should be (I should've paid more attention during high school), but with the help of Adam and others we managed to translate the most important bit: "The impropriety and absence of an agreement between yellowTAB and PalmSource (at the time, still the owner of the BeOS IP) had been confirmed to me in writing by the person best-placed to talk about it in those circumstances: Jean-Louis Gassee."

You reap what you sow.

I hope the full weight of the law is thrown at Bernd Korz.

What is the maximum jail term in Germany for selling stolen goods?

Is there a "mail fraud" law in Germany too?

"What is the maximum jail term in Germany for selling stolen goods?"

Selling stolen good, in german "Hehlerei", may be punished by law with a maximum of 5 years imprisonment. Alternatively, a fine can be imposed.

See 259 StGB: http://dejure.org/gesetze/StGB/259.html

Even the try is accusable (clause 3 op. cit.).

"Is there a "mail fraud" law in Germany too?"

Can you be more specific? Fraud seems to mean "Unterschlagung", fraud of mail? This is two delicts in one: First the fraud itself ( 246 StGB), second the breakup of the sanctity of the mail (maybe 206 StGB).

(Note: StGB means "Strafgesetzbuch": criminal code.)
