Ah.  This is beginning to make some sense.  If it is the position of German
Law is that if you can access it in Germany and it's illegal there, you must
take it down (i.e. Nazi Propaganda) then it must follow that Germany must have
some policy about the law of the place of access controlling what it is legal
