CNET reports that an arrest has been made in the leak of X-Men Origins: Wolverine before the film’s release earlier this year, though the person arrested might not have been the source of the leak. Here is the official indictment:
The Grand Jury charges:
[17 U.S.C. ? 506(a)(1)(C) and 18 U.S.C. ? 2319(a), (d)(1)]
On or about March 31, 2009, in Los Angeles County, within the Central District of California, and elsewhere, defendant GILBERTO SANCHEZ, also known as (“aka”) “theSkilled1,” aka “SkillfulGil,” aka “Skillz101,” and aka “SkillyGilly,” did willfully infringe the copyright of a copyrighted work by the distribution of a work being prepared for commercial distribution, by making the motion picture “X-Men Origins:Wolverine” available on www.Megaupload.com, a computer network accessible to members of the public, when he knew and should have known that the work was intended for commercial distribution.
