So it happened.
I recieved a „cease and desist“ letter (aka „Abmahnung“) from a bavarian lawfirm who claims that I downloaded a series episode via bittorrent.
This might even be true, I am not in the position to verify or deny this claim.
Big thing is, I just recently quit my job, which I hated, and I have some weeks without employment before I can start working for my new employer, a position which will also include a lower wage than before.
So it really is all a matter of really really bad timing.
In general I would say, there is a fuckup, I have to take responsibility – Which is true and which I am willing to do.
On the other hand, I don’t really have the money on hand.
The lawyers want approx. 500€ for the alleged infringement. I have contacted a law firm who will try to deal with the Abmahnung without going to court for a „package price“ of approx. 220€.
This doesn’t sound too much, but for me it is a significant ammount of money, especially in my current situation.
So maybe, just maybe, if you found something on my site which was interesting or helped you with a technical problem or whatsoever – I created a little „donate“ button within paypal.
Like I said, I don’t expect much, I don’t demand anything, so please no hate for that. It acutally feels kinda wrong but I figured I just could ask politely if you could spare one or two Euro or Dollars, that would be nice.
