Pirate Episodes of 24 and Jack Bauer Gets to Torture You


Since we promote piracy and all, here’s a story of an Internet Copyright Infringer getting the business. It seems the Feds have charged a man with a felony count of uploading copyrighted material, specifically, episodes of 24. What’s even more 1337 about this guy is that he was uploading the episodes (to LiveDigital.com—OK, so that’s not 1337) well in advance of their network debut on Fox. This guy can now look for to three years of federal prison if convicted.

See, kids, piracy = bad. God it?
