Well, I am not so absolutely coninced about the liablity for Directors in
First of all, EU is kinda like The States.
We have the regulations set by EU, which member states are supposed to
coprehend to.
But, there are individual governance in each member state (ie Germany,
Denmark) which does differ on some areas.
Therefore, it is not only EU regulations, but also Country regulations/laws
that needs to be adressed.
In Denmark, there indeed is liabilty for Directors, they could be jailed
for serious issues. Same for Board directors.

I really think this needs to be adressed and for sure is something to
consider for anyone wanting to be Director/Founder.

There is a study on this, located here.


PS. I still will stand up :)
