IANAL, but to my knowledge that information is wrong.  Comparative 
advertising was in fact forbidden in several European countries, but in 
1997 the European Parliament decided in directive 97/55/EC to allow such 
advertising, although with strict rules.  For Germany this became a law 
in 2000, I expect the other countries of the European Union to have done 
the same since 1997.

So you are free to compare the real facts.  And I would be very 
interested in that.

Best wishes,
HPC System Engineer
