Best practices meets the real world!

Here's another article in the ongoing struggle between DirecTV and the pirates. This one see's DirecTV put a 19 yr old college student in jail (sentencing guidelines are for as much as 10 years). Read the whole article: Guilty plea in DirecTV piracy theft.

I'm not one to condone theft, but given that most of what he stole never made it to where it could be useful, or was pulled very quickly thereafter, and he didn't make any profit on the deal I can't see anything more than 6mo in Jail, but prosecutors will probably make it out like the end of the world and he'll get a couple of years at least. Stupid mistake, but it shouldn't destroy his life.
