The owner of a registered copyright can enforce his rights by bringing
a civil lawsuit in Federal District Court. In addition, the Federal
government itself can act. Criminal actions can be brought by the U.S.
Attorney; and Customs and Postal officials may seize and impound
infringing articles that are being imported. Recovery of attorneys'
fees is possible if the suit is successful. The penalties for
infringement can be substantial. In civil actions brought by the
copyright owner, the court may order forfeiture and/or destruction not
only of all infringing articles, but also of any implements used to
manufacture the infringing articles. The court may even order seizure
and impoundment of such articles prior to trial, and in some cases,
without prior notice to the alleged infringer. In addition to
obtaining an order stopping the infringement and ordering destruction
of infringing articles, the court can order payment of any provable
damages, including lost profits. The copyright owner can elect to
receive "statutory damages". The minimum amount of statutory damages
that can be awarded for copyright infringement is $750; and the
maximum is $30,000. If the infringement was willful, the potential
statutory damage award is increased to $150,000 for each act of
infringement. In addition, attorneys' fees may be awarded. In addition
to civil penalties, copyright infringers can be prosecuted under the
federal criminal laws. All willful copyright infringement is a
criminal offense. The lowest penalty is conviction of a federal
misdemeanor, with a prison sentence of up to one year and a fine of up
to $5000. More serious penalties are levied against infringers who
make multiple copies of a work, or who copy expensive works. It is a
felony, punishable by up to five years in prison and a fine of up to
$250,000 to willfully infringe copyrights of others by making, during
a 180-day period, ten or more copies of a work which have a cumulative
value of $2500 or more. Second and subsequent offenses carry a prison
term of up to ten years in addition to the fine. Companies which
willfully infringe can be assessed up to $500,000 in fines.

The guy who sent the PMs out called himself something like 'Admin1', who joined in Apr 09. Highly dubious...

At least they'll know how refined my taste in porn is.

Sounds fake and I didn't receive any PM, and don't see any kind of this message on the forum.
Finally I really don't understand how an nzb you post on a forum is a proof you're the original uploader of its content on usenet.
