Production Companies Crack Down On Illegal Downloaders In Hawaii

Postby sunnyd » Fri Apr 14, 2017 10:31 am

Story :

Production companies are using new technology to get more aggressive about illegal downloads. And in recent months, more than 100 residents have already been forced to pay up after watching pirated movies online.

Experts are now able to follow the internet's trail right to your computer.  

"Technology has finally gotten to the point where these movie companies can actually protect their copyrighted material," said attorney Victor Bakke, who has represented bootleggers who settled with the companies.

Bakke's clients were able to do it anonymously because they responded right away after receiving notice that they were caught. "The fines range from $200 up to $150,000," and Bakke says that's per movie.

Ultra light on details and full of conflicting factoids.
I'll assume there is just no new information here.
