IMF going to be boring this year

The IMF (IT-Incident Management & IT-Forensics conference) is going to be boring this year, and I am not saying this because I wasn’t invited (hint :) ) its because Germany has recently passed a law that forbids:
German citizens to research, discuss or disclouse security problems.

Making it illegal for German citizens to participate in the conference and possibly making the guys organizing this conference act in an illegal manner.

The only ray of light here is the fact that RUS-CERT are the guys behind it, and they might be linked high enough to avoid prosecution – hopefully :) .
