Philip Danks was taken in for questioning for over 3 hours. Police and agents from the UK Federation Against Copyright Theft accused him of videoing the movie "Fast and Furious 6" at a local theater and then posting it on the Internet. He was eventually released but then in September 2013 they arrested his sister and her boyfriend claiming they had done the same thing for the movie "Epic". You'd think they would have gotten the hint that this wasn't a good idea.
Now we learn the rest of the story. On August 29,2014 Danks was sentenced to 33 months in prison for recording, uploading and selling copies of "Fast and Furious 6". The reason for the long sentence is that Danks kept selling pirated movies after his arrest in 2013. authorities said he was easy to find because his email address had his online nickname that he used when uploading the pirated movies.This guy is definitely on the list of potential Darwin Award winners.
Brendan Spaar was surprised to read that the FACT organization doesn't consider the taping of the movie to be an offense. The distribution and selling of movies is when they really get involved.So take some advice and watch the movies at the theater. If you want to live dangerously then try sneaking in a bag of M&Ms instead of buying snack bar treats.
