Additionally, Illinois increases the amount of technology fees from $500 to $750 usually imposed on first-time offenders who are found guilty or who plead guilty to violating the DUI provision of the Illinois Vehicle Code. Also, Illinois adds a ”summary revocation” to the summary suspension procedures. This provides that a person who refuses to submit to alcohol testing following a DUI arrest involving an accident that causes a Type A personal injury (or death) to another will have his or her license revoked summarily on the 46th day following the arrest.
The amount of restitution that can be awarded for copyright infringement depends on the value of the loss or inconvenience incurred by the infringement victim. If a copyright violator's actions cause a copyright holder to lose a significant amount of income or suffer a damaged reputation, the amount of restitution can add up quickly. Violators can also be required to reimburse plaintiffs for their attorney's fees and the cost of lost productivity throughout the legal process. Virtually everyone who loses a court case is responsible for paying court fees, as well, which are not included in criminal fines or judgements for restitution. Court fees can add up over time in drawn-out court battles, increasing copyright violators' financial burden after losing a case.
