from the perrfect-together dept

It appears that Hollywood and the FBI are getting friendly with each other, as Hollywood is looking to crack down on piracy. Details aren't clear, but this article makes it clear that it wasn't the FBI alone that tracked down this guy accused of taping all sorts of movies with a sophisticated hidden camera. In this case, clearly, the guy was up to no good, but it does make you wonder if future cases will involve more "gray" areas - such as making personal backups of DVDs.
