Film file-sharer sent to prison

A Hong Kong man has been jailed for three months for film piracy after he shared movie files over the internet.

The authorities say he is the first person in the world to be prosecuted for passing on files using a popular file-sharing program called BitTorrent.

It makes the sharing of material easy by breaking a file up into fragments and then distributing them.

The film industry says it hopes the sentence handed down to Chan Nai-ming will prove a deterrent to others.

The movies he got sent down for ...? Daredevil, Red Planet and Miss Congeniality. snigger.

Not exactly Oscar winners, were they? I think if I was going to be locked up for stealing a movie, it would at least be a good one. ;)
