File-sharing is a "petty offense," say German prosecutors

File-sharing is a "petty offense," say German prosecutors More often than not, Germany seems to have the only government that has the cojones to stand up to bullies and tell it like it is. Their judiciary seems pretty down to earth as well, since they barred the Federal Justice Ministry from logging IPs on their webserver. So much for their supposed guilt complex :) However, this seems to be more of an action to placate those concerned by the new DMCA-like legislation that has been passed in Germany. Says erroneus on /.: Clearly German legislators are less expensive than those of many other nations! I'll keep that in mind when I need to buy a new law! :)
