IANAL, but as I've read on Internet, in England and in France, the
ownership of laser could be punished by the law... So, if his power
exceeds the maximum allowed (1 mW), it could be to seize by the
authorities (even without battery) and the owner fined for owning it.
  The output power of a laser pointer is measured in milliwatts (mW).  
  Typically in Europe/UK the legal requirement is that a laser pointer 
  output not exceed 1 mW; in USA this output is limited to 5 mW for 
  presentation lasers. Lasers with outputs over 5 mW need to be  
  registered with the FDA in the USA.

Another interesting link :

In Switzerland, the sale to the minors (<18) is forbidden and all laser
pointers (any class) are illegal in football stadium. 

So, in my case, I'll put it in a drawer and use the stylus of my HTC

Perhaps would it be better to replace it by a normal stylus and save
some US$ (or replace it by a bigger SDCard)? 

Or to propose it as an option (with extra charge)? As it would be nice
to have the choice of the SDCard capacity (and an extra charge for it,
of course).
