Online Pirate Sentenced

Reuters has a note which follows up the sentence of a Chinese movie pirate. Last month, he was found guilty of copyright infringement. Earlier today he was sentence to three months in jail.

Granted, this seems pretty light, as here they would probably have to pay $300,000 to the film companies. But wait, that really isn't that bad when you think about it. Sensible sentencing guidelines from China, who would have thought. --Terrence Ryan
