    Rephrase it...

    "New York man faces 5 years for multiple instances of copyright infringement including, but not limited to, whole seasons of sitcoms, sport events, movies and the like."

    The title of the thread and article is misleading and makes the state seem like the bad guy even though the man in question should have been aware of the laws before he contravened them. --And the site wasn't linking to 'a video' it was linking to thousands of copyrighted shows.


    That said, I personally believe that copyright laws need to be tweaked for the 21st century.

    Well duh, they don't call it the 'Net' for nothing either. Lol...

    But that's still besides the point, the dude knew damn well what copyright laws were and meant to what he was doing.

    And on top of ripping off other people work he was profiting from it as well in the form of advertisments on his site... tsk tsk.


    I think a lot of people take copyright infringement lightly only because they don't own anything under a copyright. If we did, we'd have a very different view on people ripping off our work and especially unfairly profiting from our work(s).


    And NETFLIX exists today so... no more fucking excuses. The film companies have given us a legal digital solution for movies online.

    I've seen plenty of websites who try to justify copyright infringement by posting external links not hosted on their servers eg megavideo links etc.
    Technically you are posting external links so the sites that host the content should be considered responsible, not you. You are merely a directory
