Jail sentence for file sharer in Taiwan

A couple of months ago, I was happy to write about file-sharing in Taiwan and the position of a Taiwan court that judged in favour of file-sharing software maker Things appear to have changed dramatically.

"Three executives of Kuro, Taiwan 's largest music file-swapping Internet site, were each sentenced to two to three years in jail" plus some monetary penalty. "In the decision handed down yesterday by the Taipei Shilin District Court, the judges found that Kuro had violated copyright law in offering its members programs to download MP3 music."

That's a heavy one, I believe.
