Personal/Movie News: The Hammer Comes Down

Well, if you wanted to see the Transformers footage from Access Hollywood it's too late. YouTube busted me over this. Here's the e-mail I just got:

Oh well...don't really have a say in the matter. It's is technically their footage, which I stole from someone else. I have a soft copy of the file on my computer, since I thought this might happen, so if anyone really wants to see if I could send it to you. I don't think that's against the law. It'd be the same thing if I recorded it on a VCR and gave it to you. Now if I was selling it, that's a different story. Can't do that.

Anyway, I wondererd what happened when someone posted "copyright" shit onn YouTube and now I know. And knowing is half the battle.
