Re: I guess he gets points for trying?

My guess is that whoever of his assistants was in charge of coming up with this application did not know any better and/or couldn't care less about the finer points of online communication and publishing, neither at a technical (somewhat understandable) nor at a legal (less understandable) level.

Even if you are concerned about costs, as you legitimately should, and end up choosing a made-to-measure application rather than going fully bespoke, you would still want to make sure that it meets both your requirements and regulatory ones. Especially if you are the one making the law.
