From TorrentFreak: RIAA Celebrates 15 Year Jail Sentence For Movie and Music Pirate:

The RIAA has welcomed a mind-boggling jail sentence handed to a man who sold pirated movies and music. The 37-year-old man pleaded guilty to six felony counts of selling counterfeit media after he sold five movies and one music CD to an undercover investigator without the permission of copyright holders. As a result he will go to jail in Mississippi for 15 years to be followed by three years of supervised release.

Severe jail time for … copying patterns of information. Censorship hell. See also:

Is it easier to rationalize this with consequentialist justice arguments or principled justice arguments? This is so sad.
