    66Anyway, we are not EC here. So decisions will be made by EC, as well as all fines imposed (if decided so by EC) to WordPress Foundation, Automattic, Inc. and it's funds freezing. We are here not judges, nor the investigators. I just posted what our government law advisors in Lithuanian Parliament said - that this is what Automattic, Inc. and WordPress Foundation is doing - is against EU laws and should be processed by investigation by European Commission.

    8 Also, please don't judge me, if the EC will froze the funds for WordCamp Europe, and because of that the WordCamp Europe won't happen. It is just the laws, and we have to help all the businesses in EU. And legally they, first of all, will try to freeze all WordPress and Automattic funds that resides in the territory of EU needed for potential cover of all damage made by Automattic and WordPress Foundations to small businesses in EU, and that may include the funds expected to be used for the payment of venue location in Porto or some further year event in EU. I personally don't want to be blocker of WordCamp Europe, but that is just how the law is in EU. So once, again, sorry in advance if this will happen. I'm just not the guy who makes the decision, nor even our laywers do so - all this is done by European Comission.
