Record Sentence for Pirate Site Registered in Norway

Norway is known as a country effectively eliminating music piracy with quality legal offerings. However, the entertainment industry is never satisfied, so some movie studios decided to renew their anti-piracy efforts by raiding the video portal in the country. The court ruling was not as strict as the copyright holders had hoped for, but it was still the toughest in the country.

A year ago, a survey carried out by music group IFPI revealed that only 4% of under 30-year-olds were still using unauthorized file-sharing platforms to download music, while legitimate streaming platforms were used by 80% of population. So the music industry was lucky enough, but the movie studios were wondering how to solve their own piracy problems. As a result, they decided to raid a popular local pirate movie site Norskfilm in March 2015.

Norskfilm was first noticed by the anti-piracy group Rights Alliance in 2014 and soon became the subject of a criminal investigation. Following the results of the raid, a 20-year-old man was arrested and charged with copyright infringement offenses. The charges included sharing over a thousand films and TV shows.

Warner Bros, Fox-Paramount, Universal, Sony and Disney studios went tough by demanding 6 months in jail for the individual and over $93,000 in damages. However, the local court handed down the ruling that falls far short of those demands, though the judge did agree that the man had illegally made available at least 1,200 movies and TV shows. As for the sentence, the now 21-year-old got a 6 month suspended sentence and was ordered to pay about $28,000. Although this sentence fell short of the studios’ demands, it is still regarded as the toughest ever handed out for intellectual property infringement in the country. Even the movie studios agreed that $28,000 was the highest amount someone has ever been sentenced to, and announced that they were unlikely to appeal the court ruling.

The lawyer of the site operator also welcomed the court ruling, as it didn’t detain him. As a result, the movie industry didn’t get everything it asked for, but the man now has a criminal record. This means that the court ruling paved the way for others considering embarking on the same kind of activity. Actually, the Rights Alliance already has the next target – Popcorn Time service.
