No one is going to jail
People. LISTEN. Absolutely no one is going to jail.
This is a CIVIL suit, not a criminal one. Anyone who decides not to pay up will most likely civil suit brought against them. This does not mean jail time of 1, 3, 5 years. That's not how it works.
I do feel bad for individuals with unsecured wireless networks. There's a lot of hooting and hollering that the burden of proof is on Copyright group to show that the account holder is the responsible party and not a "leecher". That's not how it works either. If you operate a wireless network in your home or business, you are responsible for the traffic (e.g. neighbors, customers, etc.) that filters in and out of it.
Protect your networks!!
