Relatively speaking? America's population is roughly four times that of Germany.
As in no individuals to my knowledge have been taken to trial. Keep in mind that when you speak relatively, you have to factor in all relative values, such as population.

I missed you Larto, you really introduce me Meg & Dia.

Germany's first, don't you think Japan and China will be next????

Because there are any people in Japan arrested for uploading anime, manga, official videos, drama, and music on Share without a copyright holder's permission. Japan has low crime rates.

It astounds me how people in this thread can miss the point and denounce Germany's legal system (and the country itself!) like that. Obviously not all of it was in complete sincerity, but come on, people.
Sorry, apparently I was too stupid to get that :/

Do you want a VPN if you're that paranoid to connect to osu!, Larto?

I at least want to see your 100th ranked.

Guys, please stop complaining about the German Copyright. The reason why Larto left is because he lost his interest in the game, not because Germany is tracking our internet activities.

But to write something to inform you about our situation: I'm somewhat familiar with the current situation in Germany and the politics there (I'm politically active myself). For Copyrights, it's of course forbidden to upload copyrighted work, but that's the case in every country. However unless you can't prove that somebody did that, this not dangerous - that's why it's safe to download from Freehosters for example. In Germany, DPI is forbidden and even data retention (saving internet connections meaning which IP address connected to which) is forbidden and has proven to be against the German constitution.

That means, the only way to get caught is if someone directly knows your IP address and what you sent to whom. This is only the case with torrent networks and similar services. If you upload or download something without having a P2P system, meaning a server in the middle like with websites, it's almost impossible to get caught if there isn't a razzia on the osu! servers. That's the only potential risk you take in Germany and in many other countries for uploading osu! maps (at least from what I can see).

Of course the Copyright law in Germany is still bad (and need to be changed), but so is the Copyright law in every country.
