Ah - well, in that case I guess it's fair to assume that your
"patent" is a fake as well.

IANAL, but I strongly suggest you either remove your eShop from
your web site, or clearly mark it as being a fake! Lawyers can
be very nasty, and they might get you for

- not having a proper "Impressum"
- offering a product of which you definitely know that you can
  not deliver it - might be considered attempted fraud ("versuchter
  Betrug")
- not properly listing the VAT ("Mehrwertsteuer" - in the ordering
  dialog this lists as 0,00 Euro) - might be considered tax evasion
  ("Steuerhinterziehung")

But then again, why do I even care what hapens to you...
