UK Movie Pirates Sentenced To A Total Of 17 Years

Holy cow, an average of four years in prison each for piracy? Makes you wonder how much time they would have got for physically stealing 800 movies from a video store? Well, if they still had video stores.

Five men who released thousands of movies onto the Internet have been handed sentences totaling more than 17 years. The men, all from the UK and members of release groups including 26K, RemixHD, DTRG and RESISTANCE, were accused of "putting at risk" more than آ£52m in Hollywood revenues.
