Today, 130 homes have been raided in Germany under the allegation of filesharing. Law enforcement agencies had been monitoring an eDonkey-Server for two months. 3500 identified users are being investigated. Searches took place when users shared more than 500 files.

Partners of the music industry helped identifying copyrighted material, but monitoring of the servers was solely done by law enforcement.
