A Court in Germany ordered that access to certain items in the Project Gutenberg collection are blocked from Germany.
Project Gutenberg believes the Court has no jurisdiction over the matter, but until the issue is resolved, it will comply. All IP addresses in Germany are blocked. This block will remain in place until legal guidance changes. Project Gutenberg updates its listing of IP addresses approximately monthly. Occasionally, the website mis-applies a block from a previous visitor.

Trying a different Web browser might help. Or, clearing the history of your visits to the site. I have other questions or need to report an error Please email the diagnostic information above to help pglaf.
