    I'd really doubt that any one of those 4,577 people would have paid money for this film, the only reason they'd grab it would to see how bad it was. That is all.

    I'd be ticked too if I was a horrible director who made shit movies and never got paid for the crappy movies I made since people downloaded them...he's one of the worst directors of all time IIRC.

    He should be writing "Thank You" letters to them for even watching his crap.

    If these people distribute to one another...then they shouldn't need to get charged so much, assuming they're going to sue nearly 5,000 people. That's like $1,500 per person. Multiply by 4,577. (Calculator cheat - $6,865,500).

    That and what if..considering how easy it is to change or even proxy an IP address, what if she ended up with an IP that was used for torrenting? You know, IP bans, MMORPGs, bypassing. Torrent anonymously, etc. There's not much to say. If innocent people can be jailed for years, the same can be applied to this.

    The proper value..of let's say, $11.50 per ticket. (Assuming all adults) - $52,635.50. That's how much he'd be losing. If you're going to sue someone...use some more realistic number.

    I'd laugh if people pirated his movie on accident expecting the game instead. What if that was part of the case? [​IMG]

    Aaaaaaand I'm disappointed because the movie is probably not made by the game.

    This looked interesting until I realized the first two words of the thread were "Uwe Boll". [​IMG]

    Kidding. But I still think most all his movies are bad. I wonder why there aren't many good/great video game movies done by better directors, seeing that the Street Fighter Legacy trailers were looking decent to me.

    People even go through the time to pirate his films. He should be flattered people honestly go through that time just to watch them in the end.
    Hell it's pretty much the only views he's ever going to get.

    Well unless the movie is Postal, I went out and bought that one because it was surprisingly good for an Uwe Boll movie
