Itching to see the new X-Men movie? Well, you may not have to wait that long. Yesterday, on April Fool’s Day, techno-pirates released an unfinished copy of the movie over the internet. What kind of implications will this have?
Studio executives spent the day trying to get web sites to take it down. The movie is not set to release until May 1st. If the pirates are found, this is definitely a copyright issue and the studio will have cause to sue. This could also potentially have an effect on the market value of the film if people who saw the film online are now no longer interested in paying to see it in the theater. Read all about it here!
