Canadian BitTorrent User Fined $60k By U.S. Court

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you 60,000 reasons why you shouldn't share movies on the internet.

A new dimension was just added to the ongoing stream of BitTorrent lawsuits in the U.S. A Canadian BitTorrent user has been ordered to pay $60,000 by a U.S. District Court judge. The Calgary resident, who did not defend himself, was ordered to pay the damages for sharing two films on an adult-oriented BitTorrent tracker.
