Major anti piracy raid performed by the German Police

In a recent anti-piracy operation against the popular file-sharing site Boerse.bz, the German police have raided 121 homes. Boerse.bz allegedly offers over 100,000 files that include movies, TV shows, music, software and e-books without the necessary permission of the corresponding rights holders. 

The Cologne Public Prosecutor announced that the raid was performed by a task force of more than 400 police officers and that the homes that were affected by the operation, belong to people believed to be active uploaders of the site. Police said that at the moment more evidence is being gathered and that no arrests have been made so far.

A preliminary conclusion estimates that Boerse is a "highly structured operation with a clear division of labour". After the raid, Boerse remains on line after switching to a new provider.
