Finally, the Finnish copyright cops have agreed to drop a case against a 9-year-old girl. The latter might have tried to download some music, but eventually paid for the album anyway. During the investigation, local cops turned up at a man’s house searching for evidence of unauthorized downloading and seized a Winnie-the-Pooh laptop of his very young daughter.
When the girl’s father was suggested to pay a civil settlement fee to the copyright outfit, he rejected. However, he changed his mind after the police showed up at his house to seize one of his girl’s possessions. The man eventually agreed to pay off the outfit named CIAPC (Finnish Copyright Information and Anti-Piracy Centre).
Although earlier the man, who detailed the situation in his Facebook post, was asked for a €600 to settle the case, the Finnish Copyright Information and Anti-Piracy Centre finally settled for half that amount. In any case, it was much lot more than the price of one CD, which the family had already bought anyway.
The CIAPC’s head claimed that they got an agreement with the girl’s father and reversed the investigation, which was a civil “pre-trial” matter. No more details were revealed by the Finnish copyright outfit.

|Good use of Police time/money/resources.|
|Yes right reversed my azz.|
Imagine a little girl sitting in court with her teddy bear or dolly and what would you think the jury would see?
LMAO - they would think this can happen to my little baby...
The thing this court hasn't realized and other courts are starting to there is a BIG difference in downloading verses uploading.
Multimillion BS claims of loss for downloading are that BS..
The father should have had the balls to go into court with the purchased CD and receipt and showed the court how stupid the case is.
|where's the group anonymous?..they can help|
|I agree @ skreamer, Thats what called perfect utilization of Man, Money, Meterials LOL.|
|Extortion for a failed download against a 9 year old who was below the age at which any court could say she KNEW any better and after she had paid for the CD already.|
If it was`nt so absurd it might be laughable.
|consider this...how much material you have accumulated on all those external hard drives you have? How many movies, music, programs etc .....if your place got stormed today, your pc and laptop were seized along with your CD's DVD and USB storage devices.....how much money and how long in jail for you?||
