I’m Moe Greene

This story from Sacto 9-1-1 made me chuckle as I can’t believe the movies this guy was pirating.

A Sacramento man pleaded guilty today in federal court to felony copyright infringement in a case involving the pirating of DVDs…His inventory for sale or rental included unauthorized copies of Hollywood movies such as “The Godfather” and “Indiana Jones”, according to a U.S. Department of Justice news release.

Really? You are going to do time for Indiana Jones? And people are still pirating DVDs? And selling/renting them in stores?

According to court documents, Yan Akhumov, 45, of Sacramento, distributed unauthorized copies of copyrighted motion pictures in Music Land stores that he controlled in Rancho Cordova, West Sacramento, Citrus Heights and North Highlands.

Ah, why didn’t you say so. Carry on.

  1. Light: En Rusha, movies copies you!

    Wistful: Music Land always had the best selection for the best price. Now I know why…

    Dark, but true: Sad that copying movies gets you more time than raping an 11 year old and distributing films of it on the ‘net. Maybe Paramount is just better connected than the lobby for 11 year olds? I wonder if the penalty for copyright infringement of child porn is greater than the penalty for producing child porn. Anyone?
