Prenda Attorney Pleads Guilty to Operating a Piracy ‘Honeypot’

Haha! Couldn't have happened to a more deserving person. I hope they don't go easy on him when he is sentenced.

For years Prenda Law extracted millions of dollars in cash settlements from alleged BitTorrent pirates, leaving misery in its wake. Now, John Steele, one of its lead attorneys, has signed a guilty plea admitting the honeypot scheme. The Pirate Bay provided important evidence in the case, as Steele used the site to upload pirated files himself to lure potential victims.
