Kingsport, Tenn. (AP) -- A federal judge in California has sentenced a Kingsport man for pirating movies, games and software.
Phillip Templeton, who went by the name "Kryptor," was sentenced Monday to ten months of electronic monitoring, 50 hours of community service, three years probation and payment of more than $21,000 in restitution.
His indictment stemmed from a 2005 anti-piracy operation in eleven countries. The Justice Department targeted the internet's first providers, which are the sources of the majority of pirated works distributed on the internet.
According to court records, Templeton also had to forfeit a Playstation 2, about 720 CDs and two computers.
