IIRC, there was a case where LKY's photo was used in a resort promotional brochure and was immediately demanded to cease usage of the pic and brochure plus compansation.
What I find not "correct" is that no company can "fine" anyone.

from asia1 : "Once Odex obtains the identities of the Internet users alleged to have downloaded the anime videos, the company will likely contact them and seek compensation of up to 5,000 Singapore dollars (US$3,285; ?2,419) from each, Odex Director Stephen Sing said. The users will also have to destroy any stolen content and stop further illegal downloading."
actually if u do a wiki on ODEX.. u can find all the info there...and it becomes quite clear
Stephen Sing is a spindoctor where he took the photo posted by the people at Hardwarezone EDMW about burning the house as a death threat.
Unfortunately, The New Paper journalist did not carry that photo instead it did a frontpage headline with only the threat sentence and made the online community as the bad guys.
This is the frontpage of TNP.
This is the threat that made Mr Stephen goes to the police.
Link from TS is worth reading, should the affected group takes collective actions against ODEX.
Yes, the people at HWZ EDMW has forwarded that photo to The New Paper.
However, I'm not sure if TNP will carry that photo as it shows that the journalist did not really do their homework.
OMG CS also kena Odex-ed
