    They probably want "the professionals" to be breeding the spiders and don't want them to be in the hands of someone who might not know how to take care of them.

    I’d say that’s spot on (and maybe even a valid point from them). The only issue is that almost no one that that they deem professional enough is breeding them.

    The irony is that the hobby was entirely developed and is run by "un" professional people-aka normal, regular guys and gals like the people on this website.

    Environmental laws like this not only are totalitarian and a ridiculous invasion of rights, but they almost always end up doing more damage than good to the species.
