Prison for uploading a movie to FB is beyond ridiculous. CI should be a civil fine, ONLY. Prison is for murders and rapist, true dangers to society, ONLY.
Makes me feel really good to see this happen. The reason people pirate movies and music is because there are no significant consequences. Seems as long as it is not a physical crime, most people think there is no jail time necessary.
You wouldn't have sent Bernie Madoff to prison then?
What about the Enron, Walter Forbes, etc who decimate people's retirement savings?
He should get life for all the "mistakes" he and his company has made that has destroyed all his user's privacy. Seems every weeks there is some other bug that makes them millions. Also anyone that calls their users dumb for giving personal information that can be used against them for the rest of time deserves a hellacious afterlife.How much time did Zuckerberg get?
I see your point and agree to an extent. While a fine would be detrimental to him financially, the lesson wouldn't be learned. Why not have him to Community Service like picking up trash for a couple hundred or even thousand hours. Going to jail for something like that is only going to create a potentially dangerous individual that isn't going to help anybody but himself.
What? That's some MPAA logic there, he had 1 copyright violation. Other people breaking the law by downloading shouldnt count as a violatiin against himConsidering you plead guilty to 6 million+ copyright violations and get a 3 week sentence bodes well for the rest of us and our sometimes meandering morals.
No. The reason we incarcerate people is to punish them. Life sentences are to protect society from someone that has proven the can't live in civilized society. We don't kill them because sometimes the system gets it wrong and puts an innocent person in prison. You can release someone later if the mistake is discovered, however death is forever. Yes, you can't give them that time back (that they spent unjustly imprisoned), but at least they have what's left, and financial compensation can help.The reason as I understand it is the victims of those crimes will somehow feel better knowing their enemy is suffering. I've no idea if that's even remotely effective (you can't change the past), seems like a waste of space/money to me...
Because there was a plea deal, the DA was going after six months.
So, you're good with murdering 53000 people, and think it's a step in the right direction.
These examples and the one's that followed deserve prison time because their actions impacted the lives of others. Uploading a movie to facebook only cost the studio money (in theory). In that case some kind of civil fine is more befitting.
