From what I read of the initial story, she did not actually complete the download. So the dad has now forked over a small fortune as "punishment" for not actually getting the song.
Her dad reportedly bought her album / song the next day.
I think they held the little girls laptop to ransom here. Was a crime committed?
I watched part (say 5%) of a pirated video on a work mates computer last week. I live in fear of the heavy black boot of justice breaking down my door and taking my Xbox till I cough up.
Yeah. Can backfire. I was given responsibility for a project once upon a time.
Turns out the project was not viable, the engineers had stuffed up the hardware and some of the planning looked decidedly dodgy. It failed. I predicted it would, I knew it would. Still, I shoulder some of the blame, even though I can prove the main failure was hardware engineering. Eyes of management and other staff and all that.
Find the right person, not the nearest scapegoat.
They probably invited the friends and family down for the wedding but did not want to be saddled with toasters and blankets, so removed the need for the guests to worry about that. Very thoughtful of them, what do "ordinary" people, money wise, get as gifts for such people?
On a side note, marked this down for when I float my firm (that does not exist) and then get married the next day (my wife might just kill me). Suprise ceremony, good idea.
Assume that 500 companies e-mail is all hosted on the same server, accessible from the internet. There is more incentive to gain illicit access there than, say, my corporate mail server stored theoretically safely on my network.
Imagine being sold access to 500 company’s e-mails, similar to Botnets? That could be worth investing in, for your average double dealing crook.
