Utterly ridiculous: Germany says you can only buy adult eBooks after 10 pm

What? Do they restrict the sales of them in brick-and-mortar stores to late-night hours? This strikes me as really, really silly.

Adult eBooks can only be sold after 10 pm, Germany rules

The 10pm to 6am window was originally instituted in a 2002 law — Jugendmedienschutz-Staatsvertrag, or Youth Media Protection Act —  that was intended to restrict adult cinemas from showing films in the day. But many have pointed out that applying the rule on the internet, where products can be bought at all hours of the day, is impractical.

Impractical? Ya think? Can’t wait to see how they intend to enforce this.
