Talent Agency Accused of Running Pirate Movie Site

A movie studio claims that talent agency Innovative Artists infringed copyright by ripping DVD screeners and streaming them to associates via Google servers. Warner Bros. Entertainment accused the agency of copyright infringement and breaching the DMCA after screeners under its control leaked to torrent websites.

It must be mentioned that the movie studios have been able to track screeners back to their sources for a long time, but it is relatively rare for industry insiders to face civil legal action. This lawsuit is such a rare case, where the movie studio accused the talent agency of effectively setting up its own pirate distribution platform hosting rips of DVD screeners that should have been kept secure. Warner pointed out that the agency stocked the site with copies of its works, including copies made by ripping awards consideration screener DVDs that were supposed to deliver to one of its clients.

The main problem is that some of the DVD screeners ripped by Innovative Artists leaked out beyond its platform, which was just a shared folder on its Google Drive account, and eventually emerged on file-sharing websites, containing a watermark — embedded with markers that identified their intended recipients.

It turned out that instead of forwarding the screeners directly to its client, the agency used illegal ripping software to copy the movies to its digital distribution platform. Warner’s allegations go further, saying that the agency also provided others access to the screeners in return for access to other movies not yet in its possession.

The movie studio seeks actual or statutory damages for copyright infringement, up to the maximum of $150,000 for willful infringement, plus legal costs, and an injunction. Warner Bros. claims the maximum statutory damages as permitted by the law for the breaches of anti-circumvention provisions when the agency ripped the DVDs.

In response, the talent agency issued an apology to Warner Bros., saying that it has fully cooperated with the studio from the first moment it knew that the screener movies had been found online. Innovative Artists reminded that it immediately permitted and helped fully investigate the issues and shut down all access to the shared folder.
