Operator of German file-sharing site sentenced to almost four years in prison

Loek Essers | May 8, 2013
The litigation against torrent.to has been dragging on for seven years

A sentence against the chief programmer of kino.to was handed down last year and he was imprisoned for three years and 10 months, according to Ehlers. The judge in Aachen then reviewed the kino.to case and concluded that it was exactly the same as the torrent.to case and therefore the sentence had to be as high as the sentence in the kino.to case, she added.

Ehlers expects that Jens R. and his lawyer will appeal the decision, she said.
