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.

If your IP address is shown by Maxmind to be outside of Germany and you were momentarily blocked, another issue is that some Web browsers erroneously cache the block. Trying a different Web browser might help. Or, clearing the history of your visits to the site.
