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.
