Copyright Infringement Makes its Case with Deadpool

Bail Bonds in Los Angeles

The statute of limitations for copyright infringement is three years. Copyright infringement is the illegal copying, publishing, and distributing of creative works that belong to other people, groups, or companies. Creative works can be computer software programs, video games, books, films, music, and more. Copyrights can be transferred or sold to another individual, in which case the new individual could then reproduce and distribute copies.


Statute of limitations is the time frame in which the prosecutor can charge the accused with the crime in question. The statute of limitations begins when the infringement is discovered to have occurred and if that time frame expires, then the accused cannot be charged. In this case, after 3 years, prosecutors cannot charge a person for their copyright infringement case.


21-year-old Trevon Franklin was not so lucky. Last year, Franklin had obtained a copy of the superhero action movie, Deadpool. He posted it on his Facebook account 8 days after the film was released, where over 5 million people viewed the film free of charge. He also made copies and distributed them out to the public. The estimated value of that was $2,500.

Having the film posted on his Facebook account made it easier for the FBI to track him down, which they did so pretty quickly after he had posted the film. However, it was not until earlier this month that he was arrested and charged with copyright infringement – well within the statute of limitations for copyright infringement. If he is convicted, Franklin can spend up to 3 years in prison.

Not only is this a reason to not commit copyright infringement, it is also a reason to thoroughly consider the content a person posts online. There is no telling who looks at a person’s content. In addition, social media companies are constantly scanning through the content to weed out red flags. In the effort to try and earn money by distributing copyrighted works, Franklin now risks losing even more than what he would have earned.

The Differences Between Theft, Robbery, and Burglary

Bail Bonds in Los Angeles

When a person takes something from another without permission, it is called theft, robbery, or burglary. You think to yourself, “those three words all mean the same thing. They are synonyms for each other.” In the broad sense, this is true. However, each of these are distinct crimes under California law that are related, yet still differ from each other.

Theft

For a crime to be classified as theft, a person would be taking property that does not originally belong to him or herself. During this incident, there is no person-to-person interaction. For example, if John walks by an apartment building and notices a wallet on the stairs that someone had dropped. Taking it and walking away would be a crime of theft because John never interacted with the owner of that wallet, or anyone else for that matter.

If the value of the stolen items is less than $400, it is considered petty theft. If the value is worth more than $400, it is called grand theft. Depending on this and other circumstances, theft can be charged as an infraction, a misdemeanor, or a felony.

Robbery

A robbery is when there is person-to-person interaction when a person is trying to take an item that does not belong to them. The person may use force, intimidation, or coercion in order to gain control of the item. If John walks by an apartment building and sees a woman going through her wallet, taking it directly from this woman would be a robbery.

Robberies are charged as felonies. Depending on the circumstances, it would either be a first degree robbery or a second degree robbery.

Burglary

Burglary differs more from theft and robbery, and it is when a person trespasses and enters private property with the intention of committing a crime. However, even if no property was taken or there was no person-to-person interaction, the person would still be charged with a burglary because they had trespassed. If John breaks into the apartment building, it is a burglary regardless if he took that wallet or not, and regardless if he encountered that woman or not.

If a person breaks into a residence, they would be charged with a first degree felony for burglary. If they break into any other buildings like stores or office buildings, they would be charged second degree burglary. This can either be a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances.

In many cases, someone who is arrested for theft, robbery, or burglary may have the opportunity to post bail. To do so, they should get in contact with the professionals at LA Bail Bond Store at 877-793-2245 or online.

What is a Day in Jail Like?

Bail Bonds in Los Angeles

Jail is undoubtedly the most undesirable place for anyone to be. As much as a person can paint a picture of life in jail for themselves, they will never truly grasp the reality of it unless they were a prisoner. Many former prisoners acknowledge that what is shown on TV is a life devoid of happiness, but that portrayal is still nowhere near the true level of loneliness.


A typical day in jail begins with a booming, sudden wakeup call at an hour most people are still sleeping at. Breakfast is served, composed of the bare basics like toast, scrambled eggs, and oatmeal. For the prisoners who are “blessed” to have a job inside prison, they then go to work. There is nothing glorious here.


Prisoners earn very little for doing their prison-job, like washing dishes or doing laundry. Their earnings allow them to pay for phone calls and buy small necessities like extra shampoo or another basic shirt. They can also save up this money to pay off court and other legal fees. As the day goes on, the prisoner will get lunch, continue to work, and try to go outside during the permitted hours just to get some fresh air and maybe get in some recreational activity.

There are also indoor activities like reading a book, watching select television, or playing a board game, but options are still scarce. Activity materials may not be complete, like a game piece may be missing. Some educational courses and meetings are also available to select prisoners. The person can also fit in a shower. Then there is dinner, which, like breakfast and lunch, is nowhere near a 4-star meal. Finally, prisoners get a curfew, which means they have to go back to their cell.

The options to switch up a day’s activities are very limited. Since there is very little excitement going on in a day, the hours seem to pass by slower. Many times, the prisoner will be beyond bored. Friendships can be developed inside prison walls, but ultimately every man and woman is looking out for themselves.

A person experiences a lot of self-reflection time in prison, wondering how they allowed themselves to get into this position, and hoping that no one they know will ever follow down this path.

If you ever been haunted by the thought of your loved one possibly getting thrown into jail, do anything and everything you can to help them avoid that future.

Doing Proper Research Can Save You From Choosing An Unreliable Company

In California, there are hundreds of bail agencies eager to take anyone’s business. We all do the same work – posting a bail bond so someone can get out of jail. So it doesn’t really matter what company you choose, right?

Wrong.

Some companies charge interest, down payments, and have hidden fees in their paperwork, leaving clients with emptier wallets.

Do some research before choosing a bail bond company. See what former clients have had to say about them. Double check the fees. Ask questions before committing to their services (like requesting a quote).

Trust us, you’ll be glad you did your research to find the right bail bond company, such as Santa Ana Bail Bond Store, for you.
