Don't be naive. They have families and have to provide for them so, in general, they're not going to be quitting any time soon over some perceived violation of rights. I'm probably in the minority here but I see no problem with this. There's nothing abnormal about my body so if someone REALLY wants to have a look-see, be my guest.

+ - Germans reject file-sharing paranoia->

athloi writes "German prosecutors have begun denying requests to force ISPs to identify the subscribers behind IP addresses, saying that the alleged file-sharing was a "petty offense." According to German-language Heise Online, the court said that the labels did not explain how a "criminally relevant damage" could have arisen from the alleged file-sharing. Unlike the US legal system, German law has no provision allowing for civil proceedings to obtain ISP subscriber info.
