6.5.1-10 What is the punishment for an offender who acts for commercial gain?


If the offender commits the infringement for commercial gain, they will be prosecuted ex officio (Art. 67 Para. 2Art. 69 Para. 2 and Art. 69a Para. 2 CopA). The penalty is a custodial sentence not exceeding one year or a monetary penalty. Acts are only punishable if they were committed by a person who knew or, given the circumstances, should have known that they were committing, enabling, facilitating or concealing an infringement of copyright or a related right.
