A US lawyer could be jailed for up to 10 years for helping to upload porn films to file-sharing sites and then sue people who downloaded them.
Paul Hansmeier has pleaded guilty to charges of wire fraud and money laundering for his part in the Prenda Law piracy scheme.
Prenda is believed to have made about $3m (£2.3m) from the scheme.
His guilty plea is part of an agreement that will ensure he does not receive a sentence longer than 150 months.
