Former Duck Headed to Federal Prison for Software Piracy

Jeremiah MondelloFormer U of O student (I’m not entirely clear if he is a graduate), Jeremiah Mondello, is going to prison for four years for selling counterfeit DVDs of software and hacking into bank accounts in order to disguise his financial transactions.  He apparently made $300,000 in three years, mostly by selling copies of Quicken software.  Considering how well his enterprise was going till he was caught, it’s too bad he didn’t apply his creative energies to more legal business ventures.

    I suspect that his “keen sense of style” will make him very popular with a certain segment of the prison population he doesn’t want to get to know. In any even, why the hell did he go on selling pirated software for so long? Did he really think he wouldn’t get caught?

  2. Vincent says:

    Judging by that photograph, at least he had a keen sense of style.

  3. Kai Davis says:

    Yeah, two weeks ago my buddy approaches me with a ‘get rich’ plan of (a) downloading software (b) burning and selling it.

    So not worth it.

    “I sentence you to four years in a federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison!”
