Another bootlegger busted in California

A California teen got busted trying to film Spiderman 2. A projectionist saw him and the theater turned him over to the police. Being a projectionist in California recently got alot more profitable now that the MPAA pays out $500 to anyone who catches a bootlegger in the theater. There are also criminal penalties for bootleggers. A man was recently sentanced to 42 days in jail for trying to bootleg "The Alamo." Projectionists in some theaters (including the one where this kid got busted) have been given night vision goggles to help them catch bootleggers.
