Dad ruled liable and fined for his sonís illegal download
« on: March 08, 2017, 03:20:53 PM »

A father was fined Ä956 after a German judge said that warning his 11-year-old son not to download anything online wasnít explicit enough about online piracy. In fact, it was ďnegligentĒ, the court said.

According to Torrent Freak, the 11-year-old boy downloaded an audio book.

His father was away from home at the time of the copyright infringement. But his wife and son were at home, and as the case wound its way through a Leipzig court, it became clear that the boy was the pirate. But in a verdict that Torrent Freak dubbed ďrather unique,Ē the court opted to hold the kidís dad responsible.
