REGENSBURG, Germany, Aug. 21 (UPI) -- A German copyright law firm said it will publish a list of pornography pirates on its Web site at the start of September.

The firm, Urmann and Colleagues of Regensburg, said Tuesday it will publish a list of Internet connections used to pirate pornographic materials, starting with connections in police stations and church rectories, The Local.de reported Tuesday.

The firm, which represents several pornography sites, said the list will go up on its Web site Sept. 1.

The law firm said it will also send out thousands of cease-and-desist orders along with demands for compensation.

"As legal representative of its clients, the firm U+C warns owners of Internet connections who have violated copyright," the firm told Der Spiegel magazine. "These clients include companies from the pornography industry who believe their copyright has been violated."
