    Yikes

    http://torrentfreak.com/teen-arreste...nd-movie-clip/

    Jhannet Sejas, a 19 year old girl was immediately arrested by the police after she recorded a 20 second clip from the movie ?Transformers? that she wanted to show to her little brother. She now faces up to a year in jail and a $2,500 fine.

    Teen Arrested for Recording 20 Second Movie ClipSejas was celebrating her 19th Birthday with her boyfriend in a local theater in Arlington. A few minutes after she taped the short clip the police came rushing in and took her into custody on the charges of ?being a pirate?.

    Sejas and her boyfriend were promptly escorted out of the movie theater, still confused about what just happened. ?I was crying, I?ve never been in trouble before.?, she later said in a response to the trip to the police station.

    Of course Sejas had no intention to sell the 600 millisecond clip, she wasn?t even planning to put it on YouTube. The only thing she wanted to do was show it to her 13 year old brother, who was dying to see the movie himself. Unluckily theater owners just introduced their new zero-tolerance policy since everyone can be a pirate.

    Kendrick Macdowell, a representative National Association of Theater Owners said in a response: ?We cannot educate theater managers to be judges and juries in what is acceptable. Theater managers cannot distinguish between good and bad stealing.?

    Good and bad stealing? Nuts!, the guy obviously has no clue what he?s talking about. If all theater owners treat their customers like this they will start to lose even more money than they already do now. And guess who they will be blaming? Right, Pirates.

    Sejas will go to trial later this month for recording a motion picture without permission, and is facing up to a year in jail and a $2,500 fine. Seriously unbelievable.
    Whatcha gonna do, brother, when Brennemania runs wild on you!!

    Then be a good sister and take your younger sibling to the movie. Instead of recording some of it. Sounds simple to me.

    God forbid someone try and protect their product. She's not going to get $2500 and a year in jail, they'll just slap her wrist, but the theater has every right to have her wrist slapped.
