Do you know anyone that has ever been caught and truly punished for pirating music?

I have a friend who claims it's incredibly stupid and dangerous to pirate any amount of music at all. He asked me to take this survey he is doing for a class and i think its crazy how against pirating he is.

Here is a link to the survey if you're bored.

Music Pirating Survey

So have you or do you know anyone that has ever truly been caught and punished for pirating music?

I know many people who have been warned here, but it's Canada. They kept downloading music and nothing happened, even years and terabytes of music later.
It's legal here, so no prob.

I downloaded a movie for a buddy, and I was warned by like Pixar or something through my internet provider.

They didn't punish me. All they asked was that I "remove the infringed file" from my computer, and respond to the email saying I complied. And that was that.

I downloaded Ke$ha's album Animal. She threatened to tie me up, rape me with a strapon, then cover me in glitter.

I'm still waiting

Your friend sounds paranoid. I'm not saying pirating is alright, but the people who put the files up should be the ones under scrutiny, and I feel like that's the case most of the time (You know, when the RIAA isn't raping people).

Anyone but Ke$ha. Bitch looks like an eel drowning in olive oil.

Actually I think there's a few people around here that have had huge fines ($200k +) put on them for downloading like a shitton of stuff.

Of course that could all be rumors, or it could just be people they heard about on the news, idk.
#8
I don't know anyone that has. I know I haven't, but then I most definitely do not download gigabytes of media on a fairly regular basis. So there's no reason I should be punished.

This is accurate. But, ya know, there are plenty of worse-looking things than an eel drowning in olive oil.

My family has gotten a few of those cease and desist emails because my brother downloads popular movies without a proxy.

Have you seen that photograph of Ke$ha covered in some dude's love spunk? Didn't even know it existed until a couple weeks ago...

Quote by Pagan_Poetry
Because you weren't sure if I posted Ke$ha's face or her vagina?
Kelly definitely changed my approach to viewing images on UG for a while.

I think it funny the survey ignores the fact that there are ways to buy music other than online.

A CD? What's that?

No one gets arrested for piracy. It's just propaganda to keep people from doing it.

Oh by the way that survey is a federal scam to get people arrested. DO NOT FILL IT OUT!!!

And if they were to get arrested, you'd stop the criminals first, right Darkness Man?
