Fox Loose in the Henhouse

SWM - Berlin.   According to German media reports, Bernhard S., attorney at law and partner in a notorious law firm in Munich, was arrested today. He was charged with violations of copyright and pornography laws. German prosecutors believe that he is one key members of an elaborate international network that sells illegal copies of movies and software on the internet.

This case appeared even on German nationwide television news, because his law firm specializes in copyright protection and internet law. In the eighties, his law firm partner became famous for devising schemes to entrap teenage computer gamers with false letters, tempting them to send illegal game copies to a factitious Tanja.

For this reason, German computer nerds planned parties to celebrate the event in major German cities tonight, and the story is over all the blogs: Schadenfreude.
