With wee eddie on this one. In my hometown, a court case came up about two/three years ago, in which the parents of two children aged 13 and 15 had downloaded masses of copyright music files 'for their mates and school friends, for no rewards!'.
Whatever the parents stated, it still resulted in a very heavy fine, that they had to pay, with threat of further penalties if they did not comply.
But I would suggest that downloading copyright music material is perhaps not in the same league as MBS's activities!.
