It happened. Someone found out that I wrote lyrics and had business ideas etc. They wanted to obtain them before anyone else, so they bugged my life. I could explain more but what would that prove. Spies do spy on people. It happens. Hence why they are called spies.

You can't say that something that I experienced didn't happen. It did.
Well I guess you misread me, I said "it doesn't happen" in general, of course I can't say anything about what happened to you, I have no idea. The problem is you wrote it like it's something that happens in general. Plus @fazza makes a great post above in discussing the problem in its substance.

Maybe we have different understandings about the term "spies", for me these are persons employed by a secret service of a state to obtain informations that would help that state as leverage against other states in various domains. There would be just a handful of spies and these would handle a limited number of opportunities because the risk is huge (a lot of states have huge punishments for such activities).

Yes perhaps in the corporate world of big business industrial espionage exists but not for someone writing songs or for having business ideas.

For example.
How many people have ever written songs?
Hundreds of thousands of people.

How many people have business ideas?
Millions

How many spy's are employed in the world?

The resources just are not there to spy on everybody plus rent flats above their targets and plant cameras in the house. It simply does not happen in everyday life.

If you can give me an example of where someone (regular person) who has been targeted, spied on including hidden surveillance and rented a flat or house for the use of this surveillance then I will agree with you.

If we sit here and read your posts and not question the reality of it then we will only feed the circle of doubt that this actually happened.

There are not millions of spies all over the world renting flats above their targets because of possible business ideas and potential so g lyrics to be copied.

Everyone should be concerned with hacking but this is a bit different from having an Agent living in the flat above you placing cameras in the flat below.

Was this person just a regular guy?
Why do you think this person was singled out?
Do you not find it strange that he was at a mind group if he was such a vested interest by the Agents.

Or are we talking about regular hacking incidents?

I recorded some vocals on my computer back in 1996. Some years later those vocals appeared on a song with background music. Someone had taken my vocals and made a demo out of it. This is it

My Father worked in the film industry. Our family home was often searched looking for scripts that my Father had on upcoming big-budget movies. Now that happened several times. However, my Father never reported it. As it was difficult to prove without any evidence. I know that they searched my bedroom too. As poems that I had written were stolen. I've been a spying victim for years.
