As a member of the Writer's Guild and an employee of a
Hollywood studio, I would like to point you in the
direction of an article that appeared in last Friday's
DAILY VARIETY regarding the Motion Picture Association
of America's war on video piracy.
In it, Jana Monroe, the Assistant Director of the
FBI's anti-piracy division, says that her
investigations now rank as the Bureau's third highest
priority (after terrorism and counterintelligence) and
that each count of copyright infringement can cost a
video-pirate up to $250,000 in fines and five years in
You've got a lot of great TV shows and movies on your
sale list, my friend. But you're not the creator or
the copyright-holder of those works and you shouldn't
be selling those works without sharing the proceeds
with the creators and the copyright-holders.
In the future, you might want to be more careful about
how you deciminate your list.
The FBI and the MPAA can get email, too.
