      Man jailed for filming Fast And Furious in cinema

      BBC News - Man jailed for filming Fast And Furious in cinema
      A man has been jailed for 33 months after recording Fast And Furious 6 from the back of a cinema in Walsall.

      A judge in Wolverhampton ruled that Philip Danks, 25, uploaded the movie, which was downloaded 700,000 times.

      The Federation Against Copyright Theft (Fact) claimed this meant "millions of pounds" lost for the film's distributor, Universal Pictures.

      Another man, Michael Bell, was also sentenced to a community order for 120 hours' unpaid work.

      Bell, the former boyfriend of Danks' sister, had played a part in uploading material, the court ruled.

      As well as putting the film on the internet, Danks offered to sell copies of the film using his Facebook profile.

      'Arrogant'

      Danks had also used his profile to update his friends about his case - on 20 August, a day before his hearing, he wrote: "Not loking [sic] good."

      The judge who sentenced Danks said his behaviour was "bold, arrogant and cocksure".

      In a statement distributed by Fact, Det Sgt Rod Rose, of West Midlands Police, said: "We assisted the Federation Against Copyright Theft throughout this case with search warrants, forcing entry to addresses and making arrests.

      "We also supported with evidence recovery and interviewing suspects.

      "Fraud comes in many guises and ultimately affects all of us."

      Police said that Danks had continued to illegally distribute movies after his arrest in May last year.

      Officers were able to trace him after he used the username TheCod3r to leave a comment on a well-known pirated movie website.

      Danks had used the same username on the Plenty of Fish dating website.

      Re: Man jailed for filming Fast And Furious in cinema

      I don't go the cinema much and I don't watch Fast And Furious 6 type films unless they are free. I might have been one of the 700,000 but i certainly wouldn't have paid money to see that movie or any of the previous ones.

      A pretty unfair verdict given more serious crimes given less custodial time like Stuart Hall given just 30 months for historical indecent assault on 13 girls, aged between 9 and 17 years old.

      He should appeal.

      This type of "crime" should get fines and/or community service not times in prison.

      I think that we'll disagree a little here, but 33 months or 69 (for someone else) was too short in my personal opinion.

      Unfortunately the other punishment I would love to put all such people through would be banned.

      What a waste of time for all involved.

      Next time just take them outside against the wall and shoot them painlessly in the head.

      Good god he filmed a film and shared it who really gives a flying f%%k.

      Prehaps if films dvd's etc were priced reasonably, some would not bother with P2P.

      I'm fed up with it the RIAA and the rest od those leggit gangsters have to much power.

      For god's sake don't litter the street you will get life.

      I guess you could say that it was a case of the crooks attempting to catch the pirates.

      I think the judge may have treated him a bit lighter if he were not so arrogant. He even continued to upload after being caught. The fact that he was actually selling something he stole also counted against him.

      As for him costing the distributors millions, that's complete nonsense. Very few, if any of the 77K would have bought this film.

      Maybe I should have read the full article.

      I wouldn't do such a thing for money as that will just make the sentence worse when you get caught.

      Anyone know what Tag his posts were released under? [edit]...oops I see that's in the article too "TheCod3r", REALLY need to read articles before posting!
      Even the most prolific releaser from a few years ago only got "two and a half months in prison" a few years ago, and those releases had millions of downloads.

      Never seen that tag on anything I've downloaded TBH.

      I've never been keen on the uploads from someone videoing the screen in the cinema.

      Generally the picture quality is naff and you sometimes get someone walking across the footage too.

      The sound qualities vary. Some people have hacked into the sound systems and managed to get the original content, but many are not that good.

      Telesync's are best Cam video with "line" audio.

      Some very good Cam's have fake people walking across the image to try to hide the fact they were taken from the projector room!
