    Even more news is spewing out from the aftermath of Operation D-Elite. Stack this one up as defendant number 6. Plea: GUILTY.

    Twenty-two year old Scott D. Harvanek of Tucson, Arizona has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit criminal copyright infringement and actual criminal copyright infringement.

    He quite possibly faces 5 years in jail and a $250,000 fine for violating the Family Entertainment Copyright Act for seeding "a pre-commercial release work" (Star Wars: Episode III?) on EliteTorrents.
