In 2016, Trevon Franklin uploaded a pirated copy of Deadpool to Facebook. The viral video was seen 6,386,456 times and the government was seeking a 6 month prison sentence in federal court. After accepting a plea deal where he admitted guilt, the judge sentenced him to 3 weeks in prison. He had no prior criminal record. With all Facebook credentials readily available Franklin was an easy catch. Last summer he was indictment. Faced with a limited defense, he signed a plea agreement a few months later, admitting that he indeed uploaded the pirated film. The Government noted that a six-month prison sentence would send a strong message to Facebook users and the public at large, to show that there are real consequences for such a crime.
