Nice reminder! I did know about that "law" some time ago. Still, is there 
anything that can be done to make things clearer, like standard texts for 
packagers etc.? 

This was not just about silly Nazi comparisons. There were severe 
misunderstandings here, and a potentially misleading package description. Not 
to say the packager is to blame. As Christians, we ought always to be aware 
that we are in a non-Christian context where we have to have good "PR" (i.e. 
an good testimony that will draw people to Christ and make any lie they invent 
about us obvious).
