Swedish "Pirate" Ordered To Pay $650K For Pirating One Film Online!

Filed under: Film FlickersLegal Matters

online internet pirate sweden ordered pay 650k movie distribution beck

We bet someone wishes they would've just gone ahead and paid for a ticket at the local cineplex!!!

A 28-year-old Swedish man who was caught distributing a pre-release copy of Beck - Buried Alive suddenly finds himself buried alive under a ton of legal fees — a record breaking sum, in fact.

Siding with a production company claiming the illegal uploader wound up costing them boatloads of cash, a judge ordered the Swedish dude to fork over $800,000!!!

For the love of Alexander Skarsgård, that's a lot of money! Enough to make a pirate say "Arrrrrrrr u kidding?"

It's hARRRRRRd to feel too bad for the guy, though, because this wasn't his only infraction.

He was also convicted of uploading 517 other titles and must serve a suspended jail sentence and complete 160 hours of community service.

Score one for the home team!

Following Wednesday's blackout and the Senate postponing voting on the Protect IP Act, the House has decided to redraft the Stop Online Piracy Act.

Lead sponsor and House Judiciary Committee head Lamar Smith (R-TX) wanted to push SOPA through the committee but decided to back down.
