More Pirating Convictions

Zee News has it that 7 more people are going to jail over illegal movie copying. The seven are charged with basically being a chain who passed a copy from a post-production facility and allowed it to be duplicated at a local cable station before posting it on the Internet. They pled guilty.

On one hand, I feel like these guys deserved it, they grabbed a copy from their employers to get this, and that's just dumb. On the other hand, the film industry seems to take pride in royally shafting the non-union machinery that runs them. I can't help thinking that if studios and other production facilities treated their worker a little better, we would see less of this. --Terrence Ryan
