Czech Pirate Lost a Lawsuit and Was Sentenced to Playing in a Movie

Jakub F, a software pirate, faced a very uncommon punishment in a copyright infringement lawsuit after losing a case brought by an anti-piracy group. The problem is that he was unable to pay damages, so instead he was forced to agree to star in a video showcasing his life as a pirate. The condition of the anti-piracy group was that if the movie doesn't get 200K hits on YouTube, the pirate would have to pay a large fine.

The Business Software Alliance (BSA) in the Czech Republic has come up with the very unusual solution to settle a case with a long-time pirate Jakub F. The group accused the man of pirating such software products as Microsoft’s Windows. He has been engaged in uploading links to copyrighted content to various forums for a few years. The anti-piracy group tracked him down, and the police eventually confiscated his computer, DVDs and an external hard drive.

Back in September 2015, the pirate was found guilty, and a district court handed him a 3-year suspended sentence and ordered the confiscation of his equipment. However, this was not all. The plaintiffs in the lawsuit (including Twentieth Century Fox, Microsoft, HBO and Sony Music) claimed damages of about $373,000, but the court wasn’t ready to accept these hypothetical calculations. As a result, the suffered companies and the pirate reached an “alternative sentence” agreement: instead of paying out money he never had anyway, Jakub F agreed to star in an anti-piracy PSA about his life as a pirate. However, the BSA set a condition: unless the video gets 200,000 views on YouTube, there’s a suggestion that Jakub will have to pay a huge fine. Fortunately for Jakub, his 2-minute video on Czech has already got 700K+ views.

analogkid6103 avatarSo if it had not got the hits it would have been back to the fine he could not pay.
Then what?
Wages attached for rest of life?
Because that fine is collecting interest like a loan sharks once it becomes a judgement.
And that would mean unless he became very wealthy somehow he would be in the hole basically for the rest of his life.
And then would it get passed to any future children or what?

Creditors will never stop trying to collect on a judgement.
They will follow you to the grave and as far beyond it as they can.
And even if one set decides to give up, they sell the debt to the real evil guys who sit around and call 24/7 and send letters to your work and anyone that knows you If the judgement is big enough.
Then finally you can make a counter offer of so much per Dollar or Pound depending on where you are. Its a pain. But I guess it could be worse. As I recall in the UK they at one time had a so called Debtors prison.
And you can guess how that worked.

Mustafa_A1 avatarI wouldn't give this virtual guy a hit.
The reason for this is..., you have to log in with your youtube/google account
to give him a thumbs up.
That's enough information for the MPAA to find out who YOU are. They may be able to
figure out what YOU are doing and track YOU down.
Don't call me paranoid, this is what I believe is all about it.
ANYWAYS, I BELIEVE THAT Jakub F IS FAKE. He simply doesn't exist.
