VZWemp: it doesn't matter if they upload any data, most torrent clients can tell you by IP address what percentage done your peer are, and OFC seeds are 100% done. They don't need to prove 100% complete for infringement, they just need to prove you started it, and therefore can imply that you have, or had it complete. Again, civil case standards are much weaker than criminal case standards.

Fifty nine: those "to catch a predator" episodes are very carefully planned out police stings. What makes it not entrapment is that the criminal "initiates", or starts all the actions, the undercover officers online are not allowed to suggest anything, and cannot have any sentences with "implied" meanings. Also, most of those occur in California, where it is pretty much illegal to even talk about sex ed with a minor, as this could be considered exploitation. Many of those arrested on "to catch a predator are never convicted because the cases solely depend on self-incrimiation, and most of the time they are from many states away, which changes things, because a judged has to look at wether what the suspect did is legal in his or her state of residence.
Prosecuted for copyright infringement:no, as it stands now, it is a civil, and not a criminal matter.
