Our Government in action. 3 years in prison for P2P users. It's nice to see that our congress critters have their priorities in order.
Newsday.com: House bill calls for up to 3 years in prison for illegally distributing unreleased movies, songs
: "The bill, which awaits the president's signature, also calls for up to 3 years' imprisonment for anyone who illegally distributes a copyrighted work for profit, distributes pirated material worth more than $1,000 or videotapes movies in theaters. Subsequent offenses carry up to 10 years in prison for copyright infringement of pre-release movies for financial gain.
That means someone who has a movie on his or her computer that can be shared via a file-sharing software could face up to 3 years in prison, said Fred von Lohmann, staff attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a San Francisco-based organization supporting civil rights online. 'It seems to me that that's not likely to be the first priority, but it is theoretically possible,' he said."
