Robinson's squash

Meet Kane Robinson, the Geordie twentysomething who set up an online forum that permitted the exchange of file-sharing links while living with his parents and working at Tesco, who gained the attention of the Arctic Monkeys and NME and who wound up with a 32-month prison sentence after being branded a "cyber crook" responsible for "stealing" £240 million worth of music. It's a remarkable story - as is his apparent good humour in the face of the injustice of being made a scapegoat.
