The young person known as Bastian P. faces a sorrow of three years and ten months of jail, condemned for a German court for " massive violation of the copyright ".
Bastian P., principal responsible for the programming of the portal of unloads and streaming kino.to (that was going enough time in the gun-sight of the Justice together with other sites like Megaupload, SeriesYonkins and Taringa!) it received a hard sentence on the part of the German Justice and it will have to face a total of three years and ten months of prison, as reported the agency EFE.
