Oscar piracy getting worse and worse

UPI News Service, 02/10/2005 

Piracy of Oscar-nominated movies is growing worse, despite last year's push by the Motion Picture Association of America to curb such fraud.

There are significantly more Academy Award "screeners" of movies available on the Web for downloading than there were last year, including all five films nominated for best picture, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.

The FBI is investigating several cases, including the leaking of Warner Bros.' "Million Dollar Baby" and Sony Pictures Entertainment's "Spanglish" and "Closer."

Members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and other groups typically get screeners to publicize their Oscar hopefuls during the awards season, which begins in November.
