Belgium travelsites with affiliate feeds need a licence

This news is important if you are using affiliates on your Belgium travel site. Today a travel website in Belgium lost a lawsuit. The judge said you need to have a license even though you only have affiliate links on your site.

If you are targeting people in Belgium with travel items please keep in mind you are considered a Travel Agency, this means you need to get an official license to operate like this.

What do you think about this? Did you already target the Belgium people and do you need to change your site now? Of were you planning on building sites for that market?
