Where do you get the "face five years in prison" from, he's only just been arrested.

Besides, how does it concern us, it being a US citizen arrested by US officers for posting a US band's music.

Let the 'merkins carry arresting music pirates whilst the kids shoot each other in school.

Priorities, yes they've heard of them...

"Cogill faces up to five years in prison"

Yes, but that's worst case scenario - it'll be the usual fine.

I repeat my comment about priorities though.

The FBI's investigative functions fall into the categories of applicant matters; civil rights; counterterrorism; foreign counterintelligence; organized crime/drugs; violent crimes and major offenders; and financial crime.

So no-one who frequents this forum has ANY (whisper it low) 'pirated' copyrighted material in their possession?
