Default $7K Fine for Sharing "WordPress For Dummies" on BitTorrent

Bad news: You've been fined $7,000 for sharing a "for Dummies" book on BitTorrent. The good news: The maximum fine was $150,000. A New York federal court has ordered a rare default judgment in favor of John Wiley & Sons, one of the world's largest book publishers. Robert Carpenter from Poughkeepsie, New York, has been ordered to pay the publisher $7,000 in damages for sharing a copy of "WordPress All-in-One For Dummies" on BitTorrent. According to Judge William Pauley, the man is guilty of both copyright and trademark infringement.
