Accused ‘Pirates’ Win Class-Action Settlement From Warner Bros

How do big companies like this not know they are breaking the law when they repeatedly violate the Telephone Consumer Protection Act? You'd think one of their lawyers would have told them this was a bad idea.

Piracy monetization firm Rightscorp and several copyright holders, including Hollywood studio Warner Bros, have agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit over intimidating robo-calls. The defendants will set aside $450,000 to cover the costs and more than 2,000 accused pirates are eligible for a $100 settlement each.
