EU (German Text)

In short.
Companies will be required to activly prohibit installation of alternative firmware like dd-wrt and cyanogenmod.
This law will come into effect retroactivly for any wlan capable devices.

Interesting - the news article said the regulation might inadvertently prevent flashing, but the attached FCC doc said
What prevents third parties from loading non-US versions of the
software/firmware on the device? Describe in detail how the device is protected
from “flashing” and the installation of third-party firmware such as DD-WRT.
There is nothing inadvertent about that!
