Hm, that judgement doesn’t sound too hard to me.
Some people got into jail for really less criminals things…
Anyone figure out who the snitch was? They didn’t find all that shit picking up I P addresses.
…or dragging a guy out of a theater
I’ve heard of a lot of cases where a rapist gets less time. I think that the sentence is only this long because it affects big business.
You may be right.
They should go to jail just because they recorded Clash of the Titans! Not only did they ‘rip-off’ the entertainment industry (they won’t eat for .0000001 seconds!), but they also were attempting to ‘rip-off’ their own piracy customers selling them that pathetic movie!
I don’t feel one bit sorry for anyone punished for selling camcorded movies. What’s it cost to watch a movie…to RENT a movie, to rent a movie and COPY it in the ‘privacy’ of your own home? (illegally but it’s just a tiny bit illegal, not horrifyingly illegal like the criminal camcorder empire, their potential for economic and financial ruin worldwide in the entertainment industry could be so catastrophic it could very well wipe out entertainment for the entire human race forever!) Who the hell would be desperate enough to BUY a bootleg camcorded copy of a movie? EVERYONE involved should be locked up forever, for public safety; these people are messed up, scary even.
We should all say a prayer for the camcorder police. Putting their lives on the line for all of humanity!
Why is camming still so popular anyway? Risks are too high, video quality always sucks (try watching on a 50" HD flatscreen and you’ll see what I’m talking about, not to mention the horrid ear-torturing sound quality. Sorry, but I’ll wait for the BDVD to be “properly” released. Stupid idiots deserve being arrested - keep it anonymous and keep it safe, morons.
It’s all about the greed.
