Mitternacht Erotik...

It's been a while since we noticed anything noteworthy in the e-publishing world lately, but this news headline did catch Chaz's eye earlier this week:

Adult eBooks given curfew in Germany

Yes, you read that right...the Germans have decided that in order to protect their youth from unsuitable and corrupting adult material, that readers seeking sexy thrills can only purchase erotic material between the hours of midnight and 6 am.

All this, despite the fact that Amazon carry a huge amount of adult material that is not classified as such (which is a whole different kettle of monkeys), and the fact that in order to purchase ebooks, a credit card or bank card is usually required in the first place. Also, what about under-age users accessing such material whilst in another time zone, and therefore outwith the hours of the native German curfew? No, this one wasn't thought out too clearly, really. It seems already to have raised a few eyebrows in the publishing and tech sectors, and rightly so - it's one of the more pointless pieces of legislation we've come across anywhere lately. We don't expect it'll catch on elsewhere. Or at least, we hope it doesn't.

Typical Berliner seen between the hours of midnight and 6am
