German law firm threatens criminal complaint if we don’t disclose client data

This is quite frankly ridiculous. For starters, EasyDNS didn’t commit the alleged violation either way and had no knowledge of it. They know they cannot claim damages. They indirectly admitted this by demanding the data of the customer who they see as the perpetrator, so the damages part against EasyDNS is void by now. The value they quote for the damages is ridiculous in itself. But that’s how it’s done in Germany: Give a ridiculous amount to scare people and either horse trade it down in a settlement or have the court correct it for you. But they are free to ask.
