In a default judgment regarding illegal download of pornographic films, a US district court has awarded damages of $750 per film – for a total damages award of $9,000 plus $2,525 in costs and attorney’s fees.

According to Holland & Knight’s report, mindful of the concerns with copyright trolls (and without characterising the plaintiff as a troll) the Court declined to find the infringement willful based upon circumstantial evidence.
