the satirist, the Satire, journalists, journalism and performance artists that make the art of action, can get into conflicts with the law. Jan böhmermann is an example, was prosecuted for insulting the Turkish state heads of criminal. The Blogger of "network policy" has been accused of another, which is treason, because they had provided sensitive intelligence international into the net.
