Student Convicted for File Downloading

Parvin Dhaliwal convicted of a state crime for downloading movies. I believe the article is correct that this is the first state prosecution, although I was able to find a couple of federal prosecutions for merely downloading items from the Internet. See the appendix in my paper on warez trading. I’m interested in the feds’ decision to defer to a state prosecution; I’m not entirely convinced by the rationales articulated in the article.


And the feds announce more convictions for warez trading.
