Pirates Caught at Comic-Con

Pirates Caught at Comic-Con

Essentially, two brothers decided that their booth at the San Diego Comic-Con would sell bootleg DVDs in addition to whatever they were approved to sell. How they thought they would get away with it, is beyond me. Thankfully, the MPAA shut them down and hopefully this will prevent future cases at comic book conventions.

MPAA worldwide anti-piracy chief John Malcolm reportedly commented:

“Comic-Con is one of the coolest conventions when it comes to new forms of media and creative technology involving comics and film. What is not cool is movie pirates selling what is, in many cases, the hard work of these talented exhibitors and their business partners in the film industry. I am glad we were able to assist in shutting them down.”
