Copyright Infringer Hit with Fine

It’s clear that Microsoft has been monitoring an infringer who made headlines last year when he was hit with a substantial damage award for selling pirated Microsoft software. At the time Mr. Cerrelli, the director of the corporate defendant, was personally liable due to his direct involvement and knowledge of the copyright infringement.  As an update to our earlier post, the Quebec man last week pled guilty to contempt of court for side-stepping the original Federal Court order and selling pirated software through a different company.  He was fined $100,000 for contempt and faces jail time if the fines are not paid.
