Hi Owen!

Don't worry! There's no law about assigning dynamic IP addresses to 
private customers in Germany. If one likes to have static addresses and 
the ISP offers them, then there's no problem (but the money :-). The only 
thing I can think of is that the office for data privacy recommends 
dynamic addresses. Since static addresses can be tracked easily, nobody 
should be forced by the ISP to use them. Therefore the default should be 
dynamic addresses with the option to switch to static ones if requested by 
the customer. Anyway, a law forcing dynamic IP addresses would collide 
with the constitution, i.e. it would be invalid.
