No one has ever been prosecuted under that clause, as far as I know. Even in absurdly blatant cases where perjury is the only possible conclusion, nobody goes to court and nobody goes to jail.
I'd love to see one hit the courts too, but so far it doesn't look likely.
Which is one reason I'm often tempted to go find someone who knows NOTHING about copyright and convince them to take Disney down via a backbone provider or something -- if they honestly don't know the claim they file is not true...
It's especially bizarre when you consider that when using any search engine -- particularly a secured one -- you make a request for files and then receive only those files that the server gives you permission to receive.
Or put another way, it's not unauthorized access if you asked nicely and were given authorization.
Given how quickly they discovered they had raided the wrong house once they actually bothered to look, I have a strong suspicion they did know in advance they were raiding the wrong house -- and went in anyway to show off to the news crew.
I get accused of antisemitism because I generally support Palestinians over Israelis -- neither is terribly appealing, but almost everything Palestinians get accused of doing, the Israelis have done bigger and nastier.
But there's a dirty little secret most pro-Israel types don't want you to think about: The main difference between a native Israeli and a native Palestinian is religion -- one is Jewish and the other Muslim. Both are of Semitic ancestry.
If you're pro-Israel and anti-Palestinian you are every bit as antisemitic as someone who is pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel.
Actually, you're wrong. It's the other way around -- police have greater restrictions on using their weapons than the general public do.
Why do I say this? Because both are bound to obey statutory law, but police are public officials, who are bound by the constitution in ways the general public is not.
The fact that the system is corrupt and does not apply the law to its friends doesn't abolish the law. If a system being corrupt abolished laws, then bribery would not be illegal because it has the approval of a government official.
