*R v Evans

Copyright – Infringement. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, dismissed the defendant's appeal against a total sentence of 12 months' immediate imprisonment for two counts of distributing an article infringing copyright and one count of possessing an article for use in fraud. With the absence of a definitive sentencing guideline for offences involving the unlawful distribution of infringing copyright articles, the court provided a list of non‑exhaustive considerations which were likely to be relevant in sentencing for such cases.
