Man Gets Prison Time for Software Piracy
Some guy just got 41 months in prison for software piracy. Adding insult to injury, he has to pay back $810,000 and give up a Ferrari and Rolex he bought with the proceeds from the pirated software. Some people just never learn, everyone knows the golden rule. Sheesh.
Timothy Kyle Dunaway of Wichita Falls, Texas, was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas for selling counterfeit software with a retail value of more than US$1 million, the DOJ said. Judge Reed O'Connor also sentenced Dunaway to pay more than $810,000 in restitution and turn over a Ferrari 348 TB and a Rolex watch he purchased with money from counterfeit software sales.
