Man Faces $52K Fine For Pirating Bambi

Before you go feeling all sorry for this guy, it wasn't just a few Disney movies and he actually got off cheaper than he would've in the United States. What's the going rate for one song over here? Around $22,000 or thereabout?

A Belgian man risks a fine of 37,714 euros ($52,550) for sharing movies, music and games on a forum. The 39-year-old shared several Disney classics including Bambi, Sleeping Beauty, 101 Dalmatians and The Lion King for his kids, and claims he saw no harm in his activities.
