Date: January 28, 2008
Author: David Kravets
QUOTE: Last year, Walter Sewell...was sentenced under the [Protect Act] to the automatic 15-year prison stretch after downloading and sharing sexually explicit images over the Kazaa file-sharing network...[Sewell's attorney] argues that sharing such files over Kazaa shouldn't qualify as advertising under the law, and therefore shouldn't be subject to the mandatory 15 years.
