He was also charged with one charge of Possession of Articles for use in Fraud, Contrary to section 6 of the Fraud Act 2006.
Sarah Place, Specialist Prosecutor at the CPS Specialist Fraud Division, said: “By illegally sharing files online Wayne Evans knowingly and deliberately took money away from the music industry.
“His actions threatened the livelihood of all those working in the industry, not just the household names we are all familiar with.
“This case demonstrates that anyone running websites of this nature risk prosecution for their actions.”
