Colombian Student Faces Prison Charges for Sharing an Academic Article Online

This is both sad and scary.  I find it hard to believe the student is being sued by the author as opposed to the publisher as is indicated in the news story.  Also a 4 to 8 year prison sentence seems way out of line.

Maybe something like this will force changes in copyright law to make it more reasonable.
