12 months' time 

A term of imprisonment for 12 months for each copyright and trade mark offence, to be served concurrently, committed by a repeat offender was not manifestly excessive. The Federal Court judge reduced, however, the 8 months' non-release period set by the magistrate to 3 months (including 5 days porridge already served) upon entering into a 3 year good behaviour bond ...

The decision also includes a very interesting discussion of sentencing principles.
