first it is so much because he doesn't have the money to pay the offer to buy himself out of trial for 10.000 to 15.000 euro
it is not that he placed them online or that he was a major downloader, he only downloaded some films for his girls, something that probably is done by a lot of dads and moms
it proofs another time that the trackers in the p2P system that are placed on the files are sometimes connecting to the copyrightcontrol firms that are paid by the studios and the owners
so it may be dangerous to use torrents if you are not using some precautions
at the other side, he said he watched the films on youtube before
one can ask what is the link between the sum and the infraction ? isn't this over the top ?
