Any foreign company or organisation can sue your ass for whatever reasons they want - and so can you (if you can afford it that is :). What will result from such lawsuit is another story, but even costs of going into such battle versus some big corporation can be substantial for any smaller or medium sized business. You are naive if you think there are no companies in Germany that would not want to put their new competition out of business or just make their life tougher. As GOG grows its harder and harder to forever slip under the radar in local markets.
Shmacky-McNuts: Its retarded to assume they would get sued in poland from friggin germany or australia!
Not that long ago Valve was sued by Australian Competition and Consumer Commission due to Valve's refund policy not complying with Australian law - see http://www.kotaku.com.au/2014/08/the-accc-is-suing-valve/. Of course ACCC cant close Valve offices in US, but they have quite a few censorship tools at their disposal regarding Steam accessibility in Australia.
So yeah, you can be sued from abroad and it can get serious. And whatever is GOGs market share in Germany or Australia, surely it's not something they can just write off and simply agree to be censored (unavailable) there.
