Federal authorities announced that they had seized domain names from nine websites engaged in the “criminal theft of American movies and television.” The websites include TVShack.net, PlanetMoviez.com, ThePirateCity.org and Ninjavideo.net. Combined, the sites drew 6.7 million visitors a month, authorities said.
Bad news for those who like to illegally stream TV shows (everyone).
Meet Gilberto Sanchez, the anti-piracy poster boy. This Bronx man was arrested for leaking Wolverine to Megaupload. He reportedly bought it off a Korean guy for $5
“If convicted, Sanchez faces three years in prison and a $250,000 fine or twice the gross gain or gross loss attributable to the offense, whichever is greater, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.”
I have no problem with the fine but why spend tax payer money on sending him to jail.
