Agreed. Fear demanding ultimate outward self-illusional control. the bits want to be free, just as we do. Let the bits be free!

Not free, but let the punishment fit the crime. So that would mean charge the guy for a few video rentals and a small fine. Christ, all he really did was the equivalent of shoplifting. And it's not like he forced anyone to download the stuff.

Err, if they just downloaded it or something I might agree but they filmed it in the theater then uploaded them to the internet. I don't see how that's a minor, shoplifting like violation. That can have incredibly damaging results on a film, particularly if its just opening.

I'm not saying they should get 20 years or something silly but I don't see how a jail term is outside of reason and logic. The ugly truth is that many of these groups actually do profit from this, particularly the ones who turn telesyncs and advances around to foreign parties.
