apwg: Sven Karge

Sven Karge talked about legal implications of phishing in Germany.  There were lots of subjective details, but in short, be really really careful if you fly through Germany after doing anti-phishing studies where you simulate sending phishy emails.  There are lots of issues with copyright infringement, though the laws he presented seemed pretty fair -- criminal intent is important to prosecute.  He also suggested ways to improve tracking and shut-down of international phishing operations:
"To prosecute, we need good international cooperation."
This includes well-established and court-approved evidence sharing procedures so we can prosecute phishers in international courts.
