Yeah, that was an hot issue in Greece in 2002. The ban came about when the parliament passed legislation to prevent illegal gambling and just rushed it through and failed to distinguish between electronic gambling and computer games. As far as I know the parliament has passed guidelines which clarified that normal computer games were not ment shortly after.

Nevertheless the European Union executive is sueing Greece at the EU Court of Justice right now because of this law.
