Man Falsely Accused Of Piracy Deserves $17K Compensation

Here's something you don't see every day. Most of the time you don't even get an apology when you are falsely accused of piracy, let alone be compensated for your troubles.

An Oregon District Court has sided with a wrongfully accused man, who was sued for allegedly downloading a pirated copy of the Adam Sandler movie The Cobbler. According to the court's recommendations, the man is entitled to more than $17,000 in compensation as the result of the filmmakers "overaggressive" and "unreasonable" tactics.
