63-year-old arrested for piracy in Romania In what appears to be the arrest of the oldest illegal file sharer to date, Romanian authorities have arrested a 63-year-old charged with uploading and sharing tons of unauthorized content via torrents.
According to the police report, the woman was arrested in Cluj, the second largest city in the nation behind the capital of Bucharest.

"Following investigations by the economic crime investigation, police in Cluj...prosecuted a 63-year-old woman,"
read the statement. "This investigation was about the offense of making content available to the public, including via the Internet or other computer networks so that the public can access it anywhere and at any time individually chosen."

Sources in Romania say the arrest was far out of the norm, as the country has a very small track record for piracy related arrests so it begs the question of how much content this woman was sharing.
