Anti-Piracy Lawyers Sentenced to Years in Prison For Defrauding Copyright Holders

Three lawyers who specialized in anti-piracy litigation on behalf of the movie and TV industries have been convicted of defrauding them out of millions. The trio, from the Johan Schlüter law firm, were required to manage registration, collection and administration rights. But after siphoning off almost $16m, a Danish court has handed down sentences totaling more than 10 years.

In the early 2000s, international and Danish entertainment industry groups joined forces to tackle the rising threat of piracy affecting movies, TV shows, music, and similar products.

The result was the anti-piracy group Antipiratgruppen (now RettighedsAlliancen / Rights Alliance), an organization dedicated to tackling the problem of unlicensed sharing.

Like all such operations, Antipiratgruppen needed legal representation and local law firm Johan Schlüter was hired for the job, representing groups including the MPAA.
