Iranian Digital Pirate Lands in Jail

An Iranian Android developer has won a court case against an unnamed individual who has infringed the country's copyright law by distributing applications built by him without permission. The violator is set to serve 91 days in prison and pay the plaintiff 600 million rials ($13,720) in damages.
The unnamed culprit employing a Telegram channel redistributed applications published on Iran's Android market Cafe Bazaar, which are protected under the country's copyright law.  
Talking about the Telegram channels committing copyright infringement, the programmer Shahrdad Banazadeh says, "The perpetrator downloaded the Android Package Kit of popular apps from android markets and uploaded the file on their Telegram channels for free as a means to increase the number of subscribers," local technology website ITIran reported.
