His contract said he could release the passwords to one person. Other people in the organization demanded the passwords after he left. He refused and they arrested him. When the one person to whom his contract allowed him to release his passwords asked, he gave it to him. For this, he was sent to prison.

No. This is not a matter of copyright. Copyright is the right to copy. The former client owns the right to copy. This is about plagiarism. When you sell your book to a publisher you generally sell the copyright. You do not sell the right to have your name replaced on the cover.

DMCA is Digital Milllenium Copyright Act. Not watching ads is not a violation of copyright. Downloading the material is not a violation of copyright because it is on a public server and actually set up for downloads. Whether it is a terms of service violation is something else, but NOT a DMCA question.

If you have too many different username/passwords you will not be able to keep them straight. This is what OpenID was supposed to solve. One can flip the argument around very easily: if there were fewer sites maintaining their own password databases, then there would be fewer breaches.

And that does NOT mean using OpenID for everything including financial accounts.

I don't think it's punishment fetish as much as punishment hypocrisy.

We get punishments totally out of whack, but only for crimes that are not that common. This guy should be punished, but compare a sentence (30 months) with what drunk drivers get. Or compare it to the sentences that drunk drivers get who actually kill people....
