Chicago Student Arrested for Live Streaming a Movie on Facebook

A student was filming at a movie premiere and live streaming it online using a camera phone. However, the infringement was monitored by an anti-piracy outfit in India who promptly alerted police in the US, which eventually resulted in student’s arrest.

As you know, taking recording equipment into a cinema for making an illegal copy of the movie is a criminal offense under the Family Entertainment and Copyright Act 2005. The existence of this legislation has contributed to a significant drop in camcording offenses in the US, as it has been applied to everyone from the most prolific pirates to absolute innocents.

The movie “A Aa” enjoyed its worldwide premiere a few days ago. Bluesky Cinemas in Chicago reported that a student from Valparaiso University, Indiana, took a mobile phone into the cinema and started recording the movie and live streaming it on Facebook. Usually theater staff catches the camcorders, but in this case the infringement was monitored by an anti-piracy team 8,200 miles away in India. The team first took action to remove the links on Facebook, and then contacted management at the movie theatre, who called the police. It turned out that the content recorded on the students’ phone was subsequently deleted, but the police believed this offense was worth dealing with as cybercrime based on instructions issued from India, even if the recording was not professional. The police issued a statement urging students in the US not to get involved in this kind of troubles, saying that their anti-piracy team constantly traces any kind of illegal activities.

Okay so he never record the movie. He just live stream it for free via his paid admission into the theater. Via his paid for cell phone. Via his paid for internet service. Via his Facebook profile. If I read the law correctly. He never hard copy the movie. He live stream the movie. There is a loop whole in the LAW!

Technically he did record it. The video from the camera was written to memory then streamed to the internet. That it wasn't written to any permanent storage and discarded afterwards, doesn't make it any less recording in the eyes of the law because the data was already processed before it was discarded. The fact they caught him streaming it isn't only direct proof that he made an illegal recording, it also proves his second offense, which is unlawful distribution of copyrighted materials. So it's definitely not a loophole...
