Court condemns man to pay a million and a half dollars per share adult movies
And if you want to do well in BitTorrent companies with whom they have legal rights of content distribution, has yet to have a good time before they take flight and format associated with illegal stop. In Maryland, a judge ruled that a person will have to pay a million and a half dollars a adult film company for handing out seven clips via torrent sites.
The daminificado in question is called Anwar Ogiste, and while the films obtained in a legal manner (with a paid account on the site of Flava Works), made the mistake of uploading to a pirate site. Flava Ogiste sued, and the evidence against him was too conclusive to download the original file, adding a unique code associated and also appeared on copies distributed, which ended up charging him without leaving much room for defense.
The court determined that you will pay USD $ 214,000 per film shared amount Flava believe in “reasonable” considering the thousands of downloads that took the files over the network. Perhaps if the defendant had incurred the expense of a lawyer, would dawn for him.
Beyond the specific event, this mini victory will surely be very celebrated by all companies seeking-sometimes unsuccessfully, others less so-protect some of their rights and copyrights.
