Man Arrested for Pirating "The Love Guru"

Man Arrested for Pirating "The Love Guru"Submit Comment
After investigations from the US Secret Service and the FBI, a man in Southern California was charged for stealing a copy of a movie and spreading it on the internet. What movie? "The Love Guru."

Jack Yates of Porter Ranch, California, faces some harsh penalties after attempting to shift blame to others. Lying, allegedly, to the FBI could earn Yates up to five years in prison while the movie piracy itself carries the potential of a fine and up to one year in prison.

Yates was an employee at Los Angeles Duplication & Broadcasting, where he was asked to make a copy of "Love Guru" for client Paramount. The studio's intention was to supply the copy to "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" so it could air a clip.

The FBI, armed with surveillance footage supplied by LADB, said Yates made two copies, and video shows him concealing one copy while leaving LADB and approaching his parked car.

Yates is accused of sharing the pirated copy with others, one of whom posted the movie, though was only partially successful, to a Web site on June 19th and again on June 20th. The movie opened wide on June 20th.
