what is "semi-lega"l? Lawyers will tell you more...

According to 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.
