Police in Svidník, Slovakia, is prosecuting a copyright infringement case in which an illegal uploader posted thousands of films on the web.

"Between November 2021 and September 2022, the perpetrator posted a total of 3,126 files on a publicly accessible server via the internet network. These were audiovisual works and film titles containing copyrighted content," Jana Ligdayová, spokesperson for the Prešov regional police, described the act. Since the perpetrator did not have the consent of the authorised persons, he violated copyright by this act, allowing the reproduction and further distribution of the files.

The damage caused to the author has not yet been quantified. According to the spokesperson, the law provides for a prison sentence of six months to eight years for the perpetrator of this offence.
