Sharing movies seems like a good idea. Unless of course, the movie is copyrighted, which is against the law. Gilberto Sanchez, a 47 year old Bronx, NY resident was recently put under arrest for doing just that. In 2008, Sanchez uploaded a pirated copy of Marvel Comic’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” onto a sharing website called Megaupload.com. He uploaded the movie a month before it was released to movie theatres. He now faces a maximum sentence of three years in a federal prison and up to $250,000.00 in fines. Sanchez was arrested by the FBI and will be indicted in a New York Federal Court.
