Ugh, ignore my original reply. It turns out the article is originally sourced to the daily squid, and I've been had! I guess if nothing else It's becoming harder and harder to trust information you get in a twitter feed.
The punishment is excessively harsh (not just the windows bit either).
I know people are calling this stealing, but that's bullshit. When you steal something from somebody, they're generally hurt as a result of it. Like somebody stealing your lunch money or your precious ipod.
Nobody is hurt by this. The industry is just overly greedy. They know damn well this will only help to promote the film. Like the article said, I'd bet anything that it just got more fans hyped about seeing the film in theaters. Not to mention that only Star Wars fans would waste their time downloading the new Star Wars film, and they're usually the ones who would repeatedly see this flick at the cinema anyway.
I'm sure I'll see this film eventually, but I'm definitely not going to rush to spend my money on it after reading this.
