You people are lucky if you don't live here.
Unfortunately some of us do. Like ME.
Stupid Odex. They better not sue me for saying this either.
IDIOTS, I swear. Is there anything wrong with downloading anime?
Yeah. There's nothing we can do except curse and swear silently.
Even an 8-year-old user was charged right?
I think its freaking stupid.

I think you only get a fine if you downloaded stuff from a local bittorrent client, coz of all the weird laws they can't really prosecute you for downloading stuff that isn't available to your country anyway and was therefor not generaly released to you

also if you note, they are fining "sharers", I.E, those who put it up to be downloaded, not those who download them

Well, I can't blame them for sending out charges for "sharers", but lets face it, the quality and subbing sucks! Besides, they should send it out to people , not kids, or at least make the fine a lot smaller, like 100-300$?

Then don't bit torrent it, I know a few sites that offer direct downloads for a lot of the new anime out (baka-wolf is one)
