Paul Hansmeier shared copies of pornographic films online and then sued people who downloaded them, for copyright infringement.

The scheme was unmasked because some victims refused to settle, and decided to fight the copyright claim in court.

The judge has also ordered Hansmeier to repay $1.5m to 704 victims of the scam.

Took long enough, but at least this troll got what he deserved.
