Scottish File-Sharer Claimed To Infringe Because of Obsessive Disorder

A nurse, caught with over thirty thousand of unlawfully downloaded music files, argued that she violated the law trying to build her self-esteem.

58-year-old nurse from Scotland was caught with the illegally downloaded files at her home three years ago during the raid of the British Recorded Music Industry. The police seized her computer equipment to find 7,500 music files and 25,000 karaoke files. Overall, the illegal content worth around $90,000. Apart from that, the investigation also revealed that the woman was part of a "sharing hub", thus distributing illegal content further.

The woman, having three children and eight grandchildren, was the first ever to plead guilty of this kind of offense in Scotland. The court found that the woman had been distributing copyrighted content without a license, thus infringing the content owners' copyrights.

In response, defense lawyer claimed that his client hadn’t used the Internet for profit, so she can’t be accused of commercial infringement. Instead, the woman was trying to build up her self-esteem, as she has been suffering from depression for a few years then. The lawyer pointed out that the offense wasn’t committed for financial gain, because the defendant wasn’t trying to distribute on a large scale. Actually, the woman had too many of music files just because she was hoarding, which is a symptom of obsessive personality disorder she suffered from. This disorder caused her to have very low self-esteem, which she fought against by learning new technologies like file-sharing. However, in order to just be allowed into the network, a member had to have some files already, which laid foundation for collection.

The woman was claimed to have an obsessive behavior disorder, which has recently redoubled because of family problems and the stress of the lawsuit. At the hearing she expressed genuine remorse for her illegal activity and was really embarrassed about it. On grounds of these claims, the court decided to defer sentence until the end of May in order to obtain a psychological report.

GGTBod avatarI P2P out of sheer addiction, i watch about 10% of what i DL of the 250GB+ i get each month. I check the quality, if sound and pic are good throughout my brain releases the reward endorphins that you would get for doing anything correctly or the same endorphins which would be released each time you fed an addiction if you had one and fed it
