More EU madness This article claims that in allowing online companies which "direct their activities" to consumers in other European countries to be sued in those overseas courts, they have pitted "consumerists" against "free traders." This should sound suspicious, as free trade almost always benefits the consumer. Closer reading will reveal that the folks really protected by this are German retailers, who are not allowed to offer lifetime guarantees, or other things which might help consumers.
