Mosaic Defredes was selling the DVDs on eBay. He will be able to apply for parole on 4 April 2019.
His associate, Allison Daniel, is being assessed to see if she can be given an intensive correction order to be served in the community.
The pair appeared at the Parramatta District Court today. A total of 1.2 million DVDs were seized from them in 2013.
The police found that Defredes had also sold more than 65,000 DVDs, valued at $1.6 million. A factory unit in Kings Park was used to assemble and package the discs.
ASA assistant managing director Greg Fraser said: "This was a massive commercial scale operation conducted by the accused without any regard to the many legitimate businesses in the area who do their best to provide a quality service, give people an opportunity to earn a living, pay their taxes and play by the rules.
"It also took advantage of the goodwill of eBay customers who rightly expect that the items they purchase are legitimate and of genuine quality.
Foster said there were no winners in such operations. "Consumers are being ripped off by not receiving genuine products; small retailers suffer; and the copyright holders and thousands of people that have worked hard to make a film are seeing their proceeds go to criminals,” he said.
