Not sure why Andrus Nomm is charged with anything. Was he responsible for business decisions at the company?
If he was just a developer, I'm wondering if we'll start seeing a more prosecutions against developers working for a DOJ targeted company just to get them to roll on their bosses. In this case, is he any more responsible for other peoples' file sharing than Kim Dotcom's secretary?
As for his own illegal download, yeah, him and about 2 billion other people, (probably also including Kim Dotcom's secretary).
His assets have been seized, he only gets enough from the authorities to cover his living expenses and his own legal fees. He cannot afford to hire lawyers for other people.

Home is behind, the world ahead. And there are many paths to tread...
Let this be a lesson to all of the architects out there who have a tendency to over-generalize, even to the point of abstracting away useful features.
These are good points, thanks for elucidating.
Not handling hyphens, minus signs or whatever: it doesn't surprise me in the least.
Why don't eBook publishers use a typesetting system based on TeX or LaTeX? Good grief. I was formatting complex mathematical formulas and pretty printing them to Postscript and PDF before the lot of you were born. And not just text with mere hyphens.
Is there something I'm missing, or are eBooks a major step backwards in formatting? Really. I can't tell you how many computer science and mathematics eBooks I've returned to Amazon or B&N because of the sh***y formatting of code and math formulas. Not just when eBooks first came out, but on and on, year after year, and it doesn't get better. It strikes me as the laziness of corporations.
A better experiment would be to have participants choose to shock themselves or shock other people "for the greater good".
People are primed for all kinds of oppressive behavior as long as it doesn't hit them and if it makes them feel morally superior: true or false? Let's find out.
We can only pay $50,000 a year, but you get to work with really cutting edge technologies like Python!
Well played, sir. Well played.
... stop whacking people for thinking outside the box.
This implies a greater tolerance for dissenters, and more time to think critically on the job. You can't think critically about anything if you are so jammed up with work that you don't have time to take a break.
This has nothing to do with education reformers favorite whipping post: memorization. Good memorization skills actually help critical thinking because you don't have to suck time looking up obvious stuff you should already know.
