The author of the original message claims that the local French laws forbid the sale of non-localized software to non-business customers.
If true, this is another case of “customer protection” gone too far. If enforced with the same diligence as described in the original message, it could hurt the sales of all Open Source software to the wide public in France.
BTW. If you are in France and want to purchase OpenBSD for your own private use, you should still be able to do it online. Of course, you should check your local laws first.
Does your country implement similar customer protection laws? Do they apply to software?
