Hackers Sentenced for Stealing Michael Jackson’s Music

A couple of UK citizens have hacked into Sony Music’s servers in 2011 just to stumble upon a treasure beyond their wildest dreams – they managed to get access to an enormous collection of unreleased music, including materials that belonged to Michael Jackson.


James Marks, 27, and James McCormick, 26, hacked Sony Music’s servers and managed to download about 8.000 files, including songs, artwork and videos. All the content belonged to a number of musicians, including the King of Pop. Sony Music group had refused to provide any information on the nature of the stolen files, so the details are very scarce, but an official statement by the UK’s Serious and Organized Crime Agency claimed that some of the leaked files were stems. Stems are audio tracks that you can use in mixes and overdubs.

After being notified of the hacker attack, Sony Music immediately contacted the authorities of the United Kingdom and the intruders were arrested in May 2011. Unfortunately, the police found chat logs on their personal computers, which revealed that Marks and McCormick had the intention to sell and/or trade some of the downloaded music files.

James Marks and James McCormick pleaded “not guilty”, claiming that they “would never do anything to harm the legacy that is Michael Jackson’s music”. However, in September, they both pleaded guilty on charges of illegal access to computer material. This past Friday, the Leicester Crown Court has issued its ruling, which sentenced the hackers to 100 hours of community service. Not that much, actually.

1shadowwolf avatarThank you Sony for not pushing for millions, and thank you UK for not being a moron and actually making the Punishment fit the crime. AT MAX you should change someone 1$ a file, so that would have been an 8,000$ fine, which would again have been fair... But not these bogus 15 million on a single mom bull.

RUkiddin avatarWhat? So the people who get hunted down for sharing a Music CD - like the little girl in Finland - get threaten with Jail time and monster fines
But these guys Hack Sony and Download over 8,000, with intent to sell and/or trade some of the downloaded music files - and THEY get community service?
I read that they were merely seeking evidence to prove that some posthumous releases were not sung by Jackson himself! ?
Rock ON!

Embolism avatarUnlike America, English courts are not witch hunters and give appropriate sentencing and since the stuff was stems and some pictures it was not really appropriate to waste further tax payers money to incarcerate them.If more appropriate sentences were carried out in the UK as opposed to American courts,
justice would be better served.
