    This is obviously not an issue for TMD

    Moves to ban US filmgoers from videotaping films  inside cinemas     have been stepped up by the movie industry.

    Police say they will respond to calls from cinemas to assist in making the citizen's arrest, if resources permit

    Offenders caught during the latest crackdown in Ohio could face six months in jail and a $1,000 (560) fine. The penalty in Michigan, by contrast, is up to five years in jail and a $250,000 (140,000) fine.

    A recent study by researchers AT&T Labs found that three-quarters of films leaked on the internet came from Hollywood insiders or cinema staff taping films from projection booths

    Maybe if they tried to be a bit more conspicuos and stopped placing the tripods in the aisles, they would get away with it B)

    I agree bujub22 - its a good way of checking out those new movies

    Peace
