People generally don’t like losing things that they have. When a resource is provided to them as a default—even something as trivial as a pen—people tend to be unwilling to part with it.

Von Treyer ist Fachanwalt für Verkehrsrecht in München und hat das Ehepaar Karbe beraten. Er mache viel Reiserecht, aber so einen Fall habe er noch nie erlebt, sagt er. Weil das Problem im Völkerrecht wurzele, könne man wenig tun. Die Europäer hätten eben, “mit wenig Rückgrat”, das Abkommen unterzeichnet.
