Man Gets a Year in Jail for Pirating X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE was not the best movie ever, but that didn't stop a judge from sentencing a man to a year in federal prison for illegally uploading and distributing a copy of the film.

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE was not the best movie ever, but that didn’t stop a judge from sentencing a man to a year in federal prison for illegally uploading and distributing a copy of the film.

According to MSNBC, forty-nine-year-old Gilberto Sanchez was sentenced yesterday in Los Angeles.  Sanchez pleaded guilty in March to one count of uploading a copyrighted work being prepared for commercial distribution. Prosecutors say he admitted uploading a “workprint” copy of the 2009 film about one month before it was released in theaters.

Sanchez has a prior conviction for a similar offense.  He also received a year of supervised release and numerous computer restrictions.
