63-Year-Old Woman Prosecuted for Online Piracy

Romanian police targets a 63-year-old woman for sharing copyrighted material online via BitTorrent. This is not the case when a person becomes a victim of a copyright troll – actually, being arrested by the police has to be a lot worse. Nevertheless, the latter case happens rarely and usually to the tech savvy 18-to-35s. Not this time though.

Four years ago, a 58-year-old granny from Scotland was arrested for online piracy and eventually sentenced to 3 years probation. This was the first case targeting the older generation of file-sharers. Another case happened in Europe now.

Police in Romania has arrested a 63-year-old woman for sharing illegal content via BitTorrent as part of the raid in the second most populous city in Romania. Romanian police explained that their preliminary research revealed that the grandmother had been sharing lots of films, music and other content without the permission from copyright owners. All of this sounds familiar to any US or European citizen, but Romania doesn’t have much of a record for this kind of action – moreover, lots of torrent trackers operate out of Romania trouble free.

First of all, it is really unusual that the police target someone so old for file-sharing, and secondly, in Romania the prosecution of file-sharers of any age is extremely rare – it only happens following the complaints from rightsholders.

The targeted woman may become the oldest file-sharer ever to be prosecuted. In the meantime, the case of the youngest alleged pirate (9 years old) became infamous after the confiscation of a Winnie-the-Pooh laptop.

LesM avatar@1 as you would know, our governments have always had a "Little Man" complex which means we always follow the big countries no matter what. Ministers can't even explain what metadata is but want data retention for 2 years...what hope have we got?

Foodstamps avatarWasn't it George Brandis who said "no one in Australia will be prosecuted criminally for downloading, it's a civil matter" ? What a crock of $hit! I have a warrant cause I skipped out, they didn't charge me for d/l they used the copyright infringement act, I'm a mother with a disabled child & I'm indigenous & the DPP wants to make an example of me, want to throw me in jail for 5 years to scare the rest of you! LOL if it was just me I would have paraded in that courtroom cause jail sure as $hit doesn't scare me....a holiday from bills, debt collectors, worrying about keeping the gas and electricity on or keeping food on the table. They raided me in 2013 & I skipped end of last year....can you blame me, I've got to care for my kids...5 years for downloading...Fu"|{ Scabbott & his metadata BS

Thats because "most" Romanian women smoke about 3000 cigarettes per hour because they are so cheap in price.
The Romanian police are far too busy beating street children and dealing with years of corruption under the old Nicolae Ceaușescu regime,he was building the peoples palace while people starved,and many poorly children where institutionalised in horrific conditions.

No avatarAdmittedly it's been 12 years, but the last time I was in Romania - and I lived in Hungary at the time - there were stores where you could make your own mix CDs from pirated music.
