The news in a nutshell: the Bavarian police has taken a server that was running Top Level Domains (TLDs) and services for the German Pirate Party (Piratenpartei Deutschland) and the Cesidian Root (Radice Cesidiana).

Bavarian police searched the home of the spokesman for the German Pirate Party looking for an informant who leaked information about a Trojan the German government has used to eavesdrop on Skype conversations.

In addition, a server from another party member was seized.
