Studios Sue Actor For Screener Leaks

from the we'll-show-him dept

While the FBI may have arrested the guy who actually put some movie screeners online for download, the studios want to make sure the message is clear to all screener recipients that it doesn’t care if them or their friends/relatives/acquaintances who put the movies online. So, the actor suing the actor Carmine Caridi, who supposedly passed on his screeners to a friend. They’re suing him for $150,000 for each of the 3 movies that were identified as his that ended up online. While this probably makes the movie studios think they’re making a point, it’s unlikely to do much to slow down movies showing up online.
