Pirating Movies Is A Serious Offense

Pirating Movies Is A Serious Offense

Pirating Movies Is A Serious Offense

We’ve all seen the FBI warning in front of movies, warning us not to pirate the film and distribute it illegally. For the most part, people ignore the warning simply because they had no intention of doing that. However, there are some people out there who ignore the warning and do that anyway. They figure they won’t get caught and that even if they do, it won’t be that big of a deal.

For one California man, this turned out to not be the case. A 22 year-old man recently found out just how serious the government takes piracy. Back in 2016, the man posted a pirated copy of the movie Deadpool to his social media account. The movie was then viewed over 6 million times, which quickly earned the attention of local authorities.

The man now faces 6 months in jail, and 1 year of probation for the criminal act. This is a very big deal for something that many people view as a “small” crime. However, especially in this instance, this is not a small crime. Over 6 million people watched the movie illegally online, which amounts to a huge loss in profits for the company that made the movie, in this case, 20th Century Fox.

Despite what one might think, pirating movies is a very big deal. It prevents companies, and the people that work for them, from getting the money they worked hard to earn. Due to this fact, the government does take this crime very seriously, as evident by this latest case.

As Americans we love our freedom, and one of our favorite freedoms is our freedom of speech. This is granted to us by the First Amendment of the US Constitution. The amendment allows us to speak our minds, practice any religion, and protest. The internet now allows us to exercise our First Amendment right daily and anywhere we’d like. The problem is that the internet is still a new world and no one is quite sure how to handle it yet.

The First Amendment protects people who we don’t necessarily want to protect. Website that may contain what could be considered hate speech are protected under the First Amendment. These sites can say horrible things, but are still allowed to exist so long as they do not incite violence or are what is referred to as a true threat. A true threat is classified as statements where the speaker means to communicate a serious expression of intent to commit an act of unlawful violence to a particular individual or group of individuals. As long as websites don’t cross that line they are protected under the First Amendment just like everyone else.

All freedom comes with a price, and the freedom of speech comes at the cost of allowing hate speech to exist. Hate speech, according to the American Bar Association is, “speech that offends, threatens, or insults groups, based on race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or other traits.” While being able to speak our minds freely, without fear of repercussion for a difference in opinions is good, not everyone has something nice to say. Many people out there don’t follow the age old adage of: “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”

There will always be pros and cons to everything in life.

While it may be good to allow people the freedom of speech, we have to be willing to acknowledge the bad that comes with it. Without freedom of speech we would be living in a completely different world. Speeches like Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream,” would have never occurred if we didn’t have the First Amendment in our country’s Constitution.

 

Falsely Reporting A Crime

Just like it is a crime to falsely dial 9-1-1, it is also a crime to falsely report a crime in California. It is one thing to be innocently mistaken that a crime is taking, has taken, or is about to take place. In this case, the person reporting the false crime may not be charged because they were misled. However, it is another thing to purposely report a crime that you know for a fact never happened.

There are many reasons a person would want to falsely report a crime, including getting revenge on someone they are mad at, to scare someone or make them feel threatened, to do a prank or trying to make a profit from another individual because of a fake kidnapping, for instance.

Anyone who falsely reports a crime to the police, the grand jury, a prosecutor and 9-1-1 operators can be charged with a misdemeanor.

If the charge ends up with a conviction, the person will pay up to a $1,000 fine and spend up to 6 months in jail. When deciding what the exact punishment will be, the judge will consider if and how others were affected by the false report, whether they have a prior criminal history and their intentions behind filing the false report.

As with any situation, each false report will be treated differently. Some are given more leeway than others, depending on the circumstances. All reports of crime are taken seriously to start out, but if it turns out to be a false report, then that is where problems for the person who made the report begin to arise. By investigating the false report, police exhaust their energy, resources, and time when they could have been attending to more serious situations and helping others who really are in need of assistance. A person who purposely delays real emergencies will be punished.

What Is Jordan’s Law?

Seeing a video of any sort of crime or attack on the internet is happening more and more frequently. Most of the times, the video was taken without the wrongdoer’s knowing. The video will gain popularity if it depicts the wrongdoer messing up in some hilarious way.

The other portion of crime related videos going around are not as entertaining to most people. Some attention seekers decide to gain internet fame by creating their own video. Often times, these videos are far more sinister in nature. These wrongdoers decide to create a video of them attacking a random person. This can leave the victim in serious or even life threatening conditions.

This was the case was last December when 14 year old Jordan Peisner was attacked and beaten by random teen he’d never met. The incident was recorded by an accomplice of the attacker, who then posted the recording to Snapchat. A civil lawsuit alleged that the teenager who recorded the incident and posted it, did so, so that the group of friend could gain fame and notoriety online.

Assembly bill 1542, nicknamed Jordan’s Law, looks to change how this sort of event is handled.

Jordan’s Law seeks to increase the punishment for anyone who films their attack of someone or any other crime for the purpose of gaining online fame by adding a one year enhancement to the punishment.

It also states that anyone assisting the attacker in the filming of the attack will be held equally liable. The bill does not affect people who film random crimes.
