Upload a bad movie, pay a fine

Upload a bad movie, pay a fine

Paramount is suing an Ohio man for allegedly uploading a copy of the movie Coach Carter. We're still trying to decide if Paramount feared losing money from sales of the DVD or was more concerned that people would remember it had made the movie at all. The Ohio man says he doesn't even know how to upload movies, but that didn't stop them from searching his computers. They didn't find anything. Does that mean he's innocent? Of course not. Paramount can't be fooled. Obviously, the man, who doesn't even know how to properly secure a wireless setup, had the devilish creativity to clean his computers and not leave any trace of the offending file. When a movie like Coach Carter is at stake, criminals will stop at nothing.
