This includes MapleNAO, LocalMS, DagonMS, MapleGeek, and other big ones. Titan's source is still there, I suppose, and other lesser-known ones, but...its up to whether or not people are going to run with the chance of getting sued for a large amount of money. After all, it isn't as if these servers reimburse them. This could just all be a ploy to scare private servers off...and its working.
Also, I have no idea why they're doing it in Germany, but its most likely because the owners are German citizens. That isn't much of a reason, though.
