Germany's Top Court Rules Parents Must Betray Children In Piracy Cases

Parents are legally obligated to tell the authorities which of their children illegally downloaded music or movies over the family internet connection, Germany's high court ruled on Thursday.

The decision means that copyright law comes above family protection laws.

If the parents do not want to tell tales on their kids, they must pay the fine themselves, even if the offender is over 18 years of age, according to the ruling.

No one has to "deliver their children at knifepoint," said state prosecutor Christian Rohnke.
