@ Dan Bell this is to do with FTP-Welt.de where the Solicitor for a well know Munich Laywer Firm was involved, according to reports the people who operated this site had a File with there customers somewhere on there Servers, this site had nothing to do with swapping people payed to download Films,Games and Music and it now looks like they can give a little more money to the German State if the prosecutors deceide to take these people to court. :d
