Man sentenced in film piracy case

Michael Logan gets 21 months in federal prison

Michael Logan, a Maryland man who pled guilty to illegally recording two films in a Washington, D.C., theater, "28 Weeks Later" and "Enchanted," was sentenced Tuesday to 21 months in federal prison.

The MPAA says forensic analysis indicates Logan could be responsible for illegally recording more than 100 films from January 2006 to January 2008 in four states and the District of Columbia.

"This sentence should serve as a reminder to would-be camcorder thieves that they will in fact be prosecuted and can face serious consequences for engaging in this illegally activity," said MPAA executive vp John Malcolm.
