Regina v Maxwell-King: CACD 2 Jan 2001

The defendant had committed the offence of incitement to commit an unauthorised modification of data by selling equipment to be used to access unauthorised cable channels on TV. The small-scale of his activities, and the high costs order against him, justified a reduction of his sentence from imprisonment to Community service.
