TV pi­rate jailed for up­load­ing il­le­gal con­tent and dis­tribut­ing it

7 Days in Dubai - - WELLBEING -

“Well to be hon­est if TV op­er­a­tors here didn’t charge so much for their ser­vices and stopped show­ing end­less re­peats, peo­ple wouldn’t turn to down­load­ing and shar­ing ma­te­rial. The prices we pay here are a joke.”

JULES HAL­L­I­DAY

“In other coun­tries you can stream movies/shows but not down­load­ing new stuff be­cause when the catch you pay a lot.... but com’on stream­ing, what’s wrong about that!? No­body gets hurt....”

MAREIKE BALTHES

“So then they should put ev­ery­one in jail for watch­ing movies or shows online. This is just too ridicu­lous!”

RETROTRUT AHMED

“There’s some­thing called In­tel­lec­tual prop­erty rights if in case you don’t know.”

ERIC WARNER

“He ‘up­loaded’ ma­te­rial, fa­cil­i­tat­ing the shar­ing of ma­te­rial, not ‘down­loaded’ it. There’s a huge dif­fer­ence. In Euro­pean coun­tries you can down­load mat­ter, but the se­cond you seed, or share it, that’s when you get into trou­ble”
