On a lark, I searched for posts on Technorati that were tagged with “filesharing” and came across this story, originally from this German blog: Apparently, German Internet users have been getting e-mail spam purportedly from German federal police that inform the recipients they have been caught downloading copyrighted materials and will face prosecution. A certain German filesharer, who was loaded while reading his email (never do this folks, you’ll end up sending emails you’ll regret), called the number mentioned in the spam mail, which was the number of the real police. The cop on duty at the time (11 pm at night) assured the caller that the e-mail was crap and told him, “Just keep downloading music!” Warms the cockles of your heart, doesn’t it? Cop guy probably downloads himself.
