Can I just say how much I hate those? It's not like someone is going to verify it, and I have no idea what happens with that data, either, so I always put the wrong date. If, that is, I even bother to do that. Most of them are easily bypassed. This idea that these are somehow legally required boggles my mind. You don't ask my age before advertising to me...

Also totally bogus. Which jurisdiction even counts?

When I am of legal drinking age in Germany (16 years for beer) but visiting a micro brewery page from the US (21 years in some states, right?) - what does that mean then? :P

They should have a site for the German locale which is what myclinet does - same problem occurs whit competitions you have to exclude states that don't allow some types of competition.
