Dutch TV Torrent Pirate Busted Through Twitter

dancingA 28-year old Dutch man from The Hague has been caught sharing several Flemish TV shows via BitTorrent.

Police tracked down the alleged pirate via Twitter where he promoted his own rips of the shows, including the local version of Dancing With The Stars.

Last week the suspect was visited in his home by the Belgian Computer Crime Unit and Dutch police. He was interrogated and his computer equipment was seized.

The man partially confessed and faces up to 5 years in prison and hundreds of thousands of euro in fines. He was not arrested.
