Nope: In Germany it unlawful to give legal advice without having the
required formal education or a certification.  Since 2008 it seems to be
a bit less strict than the old Nazi law but it is unfortunately still in
effect.  The English wikipedia has no entry, thus I can only point you
to https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rechtsdienstleistungsgesetz

Because Siemens is one of the largest companies in Germany.  They even
have a department for education on the use of free software.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
