A Hong Kong man has become the first person to be found guilty of using BitTorrent for piracy.
Chan Nai-ming, 38, used the popular P2P application to distribute three films, Daredevil, Red Planet and Miss Congeniality.
He was arrested in January and found guilty on three charges of copyright infringement at Tuen Mun Magistrates' Court in a four-day trial. He will be sentenced next week.
The arrest was made by the Hong Kong Customs Service, which said that it is pleased with the verdict and that use of the software had dropped 80 per cent since the arrest.
Nai-ming's conviction is indicative of China's increasingly tough line on piracy. In July the country started to shut down websites hosting MP3 music files, but piracy remains a huge problem.
