Link pirate fined $13k

Yonjo Quiroa of Michigan was ordered to pay $13,000 to the NBA, NHL, NFL and others for posting links to illegal streams of live sports events. He was also detained for nine months and sentenced to time served and will be deported. There are some very deep issues here, the most prominent of which is mercantilism. Should the government be the enforcer for monopolists? Sorry, can't seem to insert a link, but here's some good stuff on mercantilism: http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20121025/18244920850.shtml
