Fined Torrent Uploaders Beg For Cash On CrowdFunding Site
« on: December 08, 2015, 01:18:56 AM »
While visiting the Torrentfreak site to gather information regarding the previous news story I saw this one that's packed with xmas cheer.. sort of  ;)

https://torrentfreak.com/busted-kickass-and-pirate-bay-uploaders-crowdfund-fines-151207/

Quote
Two Dutch men busted by local anti-piracy group BREIN for uploading to The Pirate Bay and KickassTorrents are asking the public to help cover their 'fines'.
BREIN settled out of court with both men and said it took their personal circumstances into account while calculating the appropriate ‘damages’.
The final amount was not disclosed by the anti-piracy group. However, both users have now started a crowdfunding campaign to cover the costs, revealing how much they owed.

According to Dutch ICT lawyer Arnoud Engelfriet it’s unlikely that anything will change unless crowdfunding was specifically prohibited in the settlement agreement.

I am surprised not to have seen this done already but regardless, good luck to the two broke seeders :lol: :lol:
