Warner Bros. Claims Agency Ran its Own Pirate Movie Site

Warner Bros. has filed a lawsuit in federal court accusing a talent agency of setting up its own pirate site full of DVD screener rips. I think it's a bit ironic that the talent agency is called "Innovative Artists."

Warner Bros. says a talent agency effectively ran its own pirate site when it ripped DVD screeners and streamed them to associates via Google servers. In a lawsuit filed Monday, Innovative Artists stands accused of copyright infringement and breaching the DMCA after screeners under its control leaked to torrent sites.
