[geo-discuss] Current situation in Germany is horrible

Hello there,

just tried to get information about the charges that will apply when you
license geodata collected by the "Landesvermessungsamt" in
Nordrhine-Westphalia, Germany. I just asked for the price of a very small
zone (ie. the building coordinates for Aachen) and they told me I would
have to pay a total amount of 15.000 EUR to use their data in a
web-application (like a google map driven friendmap).

I hope your campaign will be successful, because I can't understand why I
should pay gigantic amounts of money that was actually already paid by
citizens like me.
