The settlement or judgment (if your successfully sued) costs are not based on the lose of 1 sale there based on multiple factors like court costs, lawyers costs, statutory damages and looses to the copyright holder they also sue for a large amount to try to scare people into not downloading copyrighted material.

What Fire Storm is saying is that Silky took place in uploading the movie by utilizing the BitTorrent program

Technically, when you use a P2P like BitTorrent, while you are DLing you are also uploading. There are ways to cancel the uploads but it still happens. You see it a lot on Limewire.

You clearly do not understand the law. It is irrelevant if he owns a copy of the movie, he uploaded it to others and that is infringement.

How else is the file going to keep going?? People have to keep seeding files to keep them available. It should be on those who don't own the movie, he's just helping the torrent's health. This doesn't necessarily make him part of the crime, he could have just wanted a copy to keep on an external harddrive or flashdrive instead of lugging around a dvd.

He's helping the health of an illegal torrent. Sure he may not have stolen the movie but he's helping others steal it by uploading it. He IS part of the crime no matter how you slice it. If he had wanted to have the movie stored on external hard drive or flash drive, he should have ripped from his own DVD(though I remember some group trying to say that even making personal backups like that is illegal, but I don't think they had much success pushing that through the court system). Or better yet, he should have bought it via an online outlet that provides a digital download of the movie.

Oh yeah didn't think of that hahaha. Good point, forget what I said. Though they better let people backup their own stuff
