Movie Cammer & Prolific Uploader Receives Community Sentence

While I am in no way a supporter of piracy, I think it is much better to have people convicted of copyright crimes do community service rather than just sitting in a jail cell costing taxpayers even more money.

A man from the UK who admitted recording movies in a cinema then uploading them to the Internet has been handed a community sentence. Shaun Forry was charged with fraud and copyright infringement offenses, but despite recording two movies and illegally distributing more than 670 others, he avoided a custodial sentence.
