Government Monitors Movie Pirate After Sentence Served
McCausland will have to switch computers to allow monitoring

Last year, Scott McCausland pled guilty
to copyright infringement violations after being caught using BitTorrent tracker Elitetorrents. He was sentenced to five months imprisonment and five months on house arrest, which he has now completed. However, his freedom hasn’t quite been restored. The government apparently plans to continue watching McCausland’s online activity
using windows monitoring software.
McCausland can get around the monitoring by switching computers since the software being used only works on Windows PCs
. McCausland notes that he can’t afford to restructure his computer life since he is currently unemployed with a history of felony convictions. Instead, he plans to fight the monitoring.

Re: Seems he hasn't learned anything according to his whining
said by FFH:The punishment doesn't fit the crime. He's learned something alright. The lesson is about injustice in America.
He seems to think he is some poor abused nice guy instead of the felon he is.
