Court Sentences Web Designer For Creating Infringing Torrent Site (TorrentFreak)
In a case lasting more than three years, a web designer who admitted that he had been contracted to work on the now-defunct StudentBay torrent site was cleared after the court found there was no evidence to suggest he had actually run the site. But in a turnaround the Court of Appeal ruled yesterday that the designer mustíve known the site would be put to infringing use and found him guilty of copyright infringement offenses.
