Meanwhile, your favorite dictator Putin is at it again, this time with the complicity of a US corporation:

No, but the competitions lawyers will - and this can turn out quite expensive in Germany. The law in question is called “Unlauterer Wettbewerb” and restricts how companies can advertise there products. Under it side by side comparison was completely banned in Germany up until 2000. Now it is as restricted as possible without breaking EU regulations.

As a result Germany has no culture of side by side comparison in advertising (magazines can do it of course), it is considered bad taste and will usually result an cease and desist letter (with a heavy invoice attached) or worse a court case.

You should stop talking about other countries culture if you have no idea whatsoever on how they might differ from your own. And this includes Russian Culture.

You mean bloody Russian fascism?
Everyone can see that you did not bother answering this latest article about the Russian dictatorship:
http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/htm...crosoft12.html
You cannot be bothered with a democratic debate? Facts always bother the fascists.

Your lengthy legal tirade is ridiculous when the subject is a video of two readers on youtube. Any journalist or tester on internet could put a video on youtube comparing a new Pocketbook reader and a new Kindle. Many people who got a Kindle 3 before the release date did just that. Right now the guy from Pocketbook is the one making incredible claims without a single proof.

You mean like the fact that Putin has bee democratic elected twice as president and once as prime minister. Perhaps the Russians like strong leadership which gets thing done. I am German living in Switzerland, who am I to judge.

Yes but not an employee of Pocketbook. The original question was: “Why did pocketbook not have no kindle to compare.” That's the question I have answered. I leave the question if Pearl-Screens are better then PocketBook-screens to those who have compared both devices.

How could any intelligent person assume that everyone on internet is a member of Slashdot?

How could any intelligent person assume that a country where so many journalists who dared criticized Putin got killed or got their media violently attacked is a democracy?

How could any intelligent person prefer to accuse someone of being a troll to clearly proving he/she is right?

How could any intelligent person not recognize that Pocketbook made an absurd claim about their screen without proving it even though there was a way to prove it?

As a German, what do you think of Hitler?

Political subjects should always be avoided where not needed, it always bring unnecessary tension. Unnecessary because it's a thread about Pocketbook. Personally (I'm not a mod so my opinion has no effect) I thought that line about Hitler was VERY unnecessary.

So, about Pocketbook what was exactly their "absurd claim" ? If I remember correctly, they just said we should put devices side by side and make our own judgment. Doesn't seem like something to get angry over. I can't view the video now, but that's what I remember from it...What's exactly the problem ?

Anyhow; Papi is defenitely right and I believe the thread, which has come a far way from the well made video charbax pointed us to, has outlived itself.

The problem is he refused to answer the question about the screen technology of their new models directly. He claimed people could not tell the difference instead of proving it.
That is not an honest attitude.

The difference is, the Pearl screen is better than in Strom generation, this we do not argue. But the differences are not very significant, and are partially reduced by the advanced settings displaying text in the Pocketbook. A comparative video should be made by independent users or journalists, are not us ...

I am not a fan of Putin. I am a fan of “innocent until proven guilty” — by a court of justice that is and not a Seattle newspaper.

And BTW: Do you think it is proper to attack someones country of origin while hiding behind a pseudonym and not declaring once own country of origin? I don't call that proper, I call that cowardice.

You are the one avoiding answering directly to the questions asked.
Next time hold a mirror when accusing someone of being a coward!

I have answered all the relevant questions. And I actively refused to answer irrelevant questions.

Main Problem is that you ignore the answers given it they are not what you want to hear.

We have clearly told you why PocketBook can not make a side by side comparison. Why it is not advisable under German law to have your competitors product on you presentation.

And you still attack them for not doing what would get them into legal trouble.

And not I did not call you a coward. I stated which action I consider cowardice. You could for example have answered “Sorry, I forgot to mention I am from…” instead of including yourself into group of people who performed the named action.
