So I've been "downloading" some software for editing videos recently. Wondering, what are the chances somebody gets caught for pirating.
Here's an estimated number that I randomly just thought of in my head: about $12,250
So what are the chances a pirate gets caught for downloading such programs and I've seen the warnings about 250,000 dollars but I also read people pay about 3,000 dollars for settlement. What do you think the chances are and how much do you pirate?
Some torrents are watched by ISP's, and you may get a few warnings from your ISP with them threatening to cut off your service. But chances of getting "caught" and prosecuted are close to nil.
