A German artist may now potentially face criminal charges in Germany after he projected a huge image onto the walls of the United States Embassy in Berlin last Sunday.

The image was of fellow German Kim Dotcom, the embattled founder of Megaupload, along with the phrase “United Stasi of America,” referring to the secret police of former East Germany. Oliver Bienkowski videoed the event and set the video to a song that Dotcom had previously recorded, entitled “Mr. President,” which includes lines like: “What about free speech, Mr. President?” Although his light art performance only lasted for 30 seconds, German newspaper Der Tagespiegel (The Daily Mirror) reported this week that Oliver Bienkowski is now being investigated (Google Translate) by local authorities in Berlin.
