Court Order Forbids ‘Poor Pirate’ To Use BitTorrent

I don't know what the problem is here. Pay the $7,500 or quit using BitTorrent. Seems pretty straightforward to me.

A federal court in Oregon has signed off on a highly peculiar judgment against a Dallas Buyers Club pirate. Citing "financial hardship," the woman doesn't have to pay the $7,500 in costs and fees as long as she promises not to download any infringing material in the future, and removes any and all BitTorrent clients.
