Although I think the law is wrong, I'd say your argument make sense,
since the law exists after all and is just as real as copyright and

This is stupid. The DDR was just as legitimate a state as the BRD,

right and wrong.. There is no law against use of DDR symbols either,
otherwise half of Germany's media industry would be jailed by now :)
