what is "semi-lega"l? Lawyers will tell you more...
According to http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2002/31/section/1 it is a full (not semi) offence with up to 5 years in prison in the UK.
And even possessing such a tool isn't allowed:
So, please go to the UK and tell them that it is semi-legal.
In Germany it appears there is no special law but it is discussed (google for it) that it can be punished like replacing the licence plate
or the serial number of a car. So you have been warned.
