US wants prison sentence for Facebook user who pirated 'Deadpool' • TorrentFreak
<p>To be clear, [Trevon] Franklin [aged 22, from Fresno, California] wasn’t the person who originally made the copy available. [In early 2016] He simply downloaded it from the file-sharing site Putlocker.is and then proceeded to upload it to his Facebook account, using the screen name ‘Tre-Von M. King.’

This post went viral with more than six million viewers ‘tuning in.’ While many people dream of this kind of attention, in this case, it meant that copyright holder Twentieth Century Fox and the feds were alerted.

The FBI launched a full-fledged investigation which eventually led to an indictment and the arrest of Franklin last summer.

Earlier this year, Franklin signed a plea agreement with the Government where he admitted to sharing the pirated film on Facebook. In return, the authorities recommended a sentence reduction.

This week the Government submitted its sentencing recommendation. Franklin pleaded guilty to a Class A misdemeanor which carries a maximum prison term of a year. While the Government doesn’t go that far, it believes a significant sentence is required.

“[T]he government recommends the high-end sentence of six months’ imprisonment, to be followed by a one-year term of supervised release, and a mandatory special assessment of $100,” the sentencing position reads.</p>

Franklin was aged, what, 19 or 20 when he uploaded the film? I think the time when you might claim you didn't know making pirated films available was illegal has long since passed. Six months comes across as pretty light compared to what hackers have suffered.

17-35041.pdf US Appeals Court rules IP address alone not enough for piracy charge.
Man had open wifi. Someone downloaded a movie. Someone tried to sue him for downloading movie. Court rules that an IP address alone isn't enough to charge someone with piracy.

Interesting and unintended takeaway: Maybe keeping your home wifi open will provide plausible deniability if you are accused of piracy.

Nosferatu is only viewable today due to piracy
'In 1922 a German court ordered all prints and negatives of Nosferatu destroyed following a copyright dispute with the widow of Bram Stoker. The film only exists today because of piracy. One copy survived and somehow found it's way to America, where Dracula was already in the public domain. That's it. That's the only reason you've ever seen the granddaddy of all horror movies.'
