This is crazy. Apparently only a few hours after its worldwide release, Episode III was already available for download on a few sites, and that 16,000 downloads had been done 5 hours after screening. Also, one copy of the movie was leaked before the screening.
:vikki: When will they learn?
The cream of the crop

i hear that loads of copies were leaked into theaters all accross the world last night. millions saw them! THE HORROR!
yeah, that is pretty crazy. it will only get worse as more people become familiar wwith computers.
English authorities have seized sleeves for pirated DVD copies of the film, complete with an introduction from director George Lucas, that were being prepped for sale.
The irony. Inside job, if you ask me
Come on. Don't tell me you didn't expect this. As unfortunate as it is, movie piracy is getting faster by the minute.
I WAS expecting this to happen... only not THIS FAST!!!
Yeah, the movie on the net before its even in the cinema's, that's quick...

I think that it's interesting that people are so poor that they can't afford to spend £4.50 to go to the cinema to see a movie on a massive screen with a superb surround sound system, and instead have to settle for shitty quality pirate copies... yet they can afford to buy a computer with an internet connection :uhm:. It's not just illegal -- it's idiotic, as well.
Isn't this what happens to many major movies that come out? I'm not surprised at all.
Who the hell would want to watch a movie like this on their PC? Only the nerdeiest of nerds would. Pathetic.
the copy is a print copy, with a timer at the top. it is vavalable on *****, and has maney torrents.
