At PSFK, we're never too sure whether legal attempts will ever control web users use and 'mis-use' of the web but it's interesting to spot a couple of examples of the law catching up with the activities of folk on the web.

At PSFK, we’re never too sure whether legal attempts will ever control web users use and ‘mis-use’ of the web but it’s interesting to spot a couple of examples of the law catching up with the activities of folk on the web. USA Today reports on the arrest of a man who put 24 up on the web:

Federal authorities have charged a Chicago man with copyright violations for allegedly uploading several episodes of Fox’s 24 on the Internet before the show’s season premiere earlier this year. Jorge Romero, 24, used a website to download the first four episodes of the sixth season of 24 and then uploaded them to LiveDigital.com, according to a federal complaint filed in Los Angeles on Friday.
