I don't care if the prison he has to spend 18 months in is a tropical paradise, the fact is I'd rather not be told where I am confined for the next 18 months. And a criminal conviction will do wonders for this poor guy. Not to mention legal fees and a $20k fine. For sharing files. Man, that's rough.
