Submission + - 33 Months In Prison For Recording a Movie in a Theater (torrentfreak.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Philip Danks made a video recording of the movie Fast & Furious 6 in a UK cinema. Later, he shared it via bittorrent and allegedly sold physical copies. Now, he's been sentenced to 33 months in prison for his actions. "In Court it was claimed that Danks’ uploading of Fast 6 resulted in more than 700,000 downloads costing Universal Pictures and the wider industry millions of pounds in losses." Danks was originally told police weren't going to take any action against him, but he unwisely continued to share the movie files after his initial interview with authorities.
