They have their share of stupid laws as well. Having someone send you random
data can get you thrown in jail unless you can convince a judge that it
really is just random data and not encrypted data that you can be required
to provide the decryption keys for under penalty of a long jail sentence.

I have also read comlaints about potential abuse in their relatively recent
anti-nuisance law.

I suspect bad laws are common all over the world (at least anywhere there
are politicians).
