Irishman Jailed for Selling Pirate DVDs
Today’s Cork Examiner carries an article on a Mr Michael McDonagh, an unemployed man 42 years old, who was yesterday sentenced to six months in jail and a 1,500 euro fine. He was convicted of ten counts of copyright infringement, having been caught with 400 CDs and DVDs at his market stall in Co. Leitrim. The case was heard in Carrick on Shannon Court and the prosecution was taken by the Irish Recorded Music Industry Association, the local equivalent of the RIAA. Seemingly he is the first person to be jailed under the criminal provisions of the law.
