Drugs Overdose: the Best Movie Pirate ‘maVen’ is Dead

Gérémi Adam, better known as ‘maVen’, who was sentenced to 9 weeks in jail and was also obliged to a hundred hours of community service, has died supposedly from drug overdose. His partner Cynthia Laporte admitted that Adam began taking morphine in prison, coping with the stress. Seems like his bad habit has finally killed him.

‘maVen’ was a rare group, releasing ‘telesync’ movie copies of such great quality and consistency onto the Internet. It came to an end 4 years ago when ‘camcoder’ Gérémi Adam was arrested for distributing illegal copies of the Hollywood movies “How to Eat Fried Worms” and “Invincible” in the web from his ‘maVen’ account. In 2 years he was taken red-handed again while he was camcording the “Street Kings”. The last case was the third one, coming under the revised Criminal Code. That’s where he has got a prison time last month.

Richard Brouillard, Gérémi Adam’s attorney, had argued for community service, telling the court that Adam had quite a difficult childhood and also mentioning many times at the trial that he didn’t make any profit from his illegal distribution of copyrighted content, as his only purpose for getting into pirate activity was to become an online celebrity. However, the prosecution insisted on a jail time and the court agreed.

Finally, Gérémi Adam served seven days of the sentence. But his partner for 2 years Laporte said that was the time when he began using morphine in his attempts to cope with imprisonment. In the meantime he kept taking prescribed tranquilizers and anti-depressant medications as well.

Cynthia Laporte added his partner continued taking morphine after release and was trying hard to hide this habit. Last week Adam was taken ill. An ambulance was called immediately, but… it was too late already. Gérémi Adam died just before midnight last Sunday, supposedly from drugs overdose.
Cynthia said Adam was always proud to be the best Canadian movie pirate. Putting aside the fact that his activities were illegal, his works were always so impressive, that probably such technical achievements would never be bettered.

They had plans with Laporte – he wanted to move to a duplex and build his offline life. Adam was only 28.

The authorities need 1-2 weeks time to find out the exact cause of his death.

SnakeyB avatarR.I.P maVen, The punishment went far beyond the crime. Seeing as the courts felt that his crime was so evil that punishment was needed, community service would have been better served for society as a whole. I completely agree with tonymengela @#5, Cynthia should definitely check out her legal options.

MRclassictorrent avatarAs all the others said maven was very good he did what he did very well. Sorry to hear that he died he will be missed. Maven also released lots of screeners not only telesync or cams. I remember him from back in the day at some time he was on the run from the authorities. RIP Maven!
