+ - Thai Criminal Court: FTP users are SysAdmins->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Having an access to FTP (File Transfer Protocol) service means you are a system administrator, therefore liable for criminal charge for any content presented on the website, whether you are the poster or not — according to Article 15 of Computer-related Crime Act. We learned this from Thai Criminal Court, on a ruling of a web designer of an anti-government political website. He was sentenced to 13 years in jail.

It's so cool to know that web designers who have access to FTP (how can they upload flashy animated GIFs without one?) are now all system administrators. And, according to the ruling's rational, even *anonymous* FTP users can be system administrators. We all now have a free ticket to jail :)"
