"A lawyer from Augsburg, Germany sent a "Abmahnung" to a person
which downloaded Debian using Bittorrent. The company "Media Art
Holland b.v" claimed that she has the "Nutzungs und
Verwertungsrechte" (something like distribution rights).
"The lawyer wants the poster to pay 700 Euro and stop uploading
of Debian. My opinion is that this behavior is not good for
Debian's reputation and the project should take legal action
against the lawyer and this company."
