Accused ‘Wolverine’ pirate calls charges ‘ridiculous’: | via Media Maverick CNet News

Wolverine” went on to gross $375 million worldwide, so it doesn’t appear the pirated copy prevented the film from turning a profit.

‘It’s just ridiculous. I bought it from a Korean guy on the street for five bucks. Then I uploaded it. I didn’t make any money.’

Curious, but I didn’t know that “making money” for yourself or whether or not a movie company made a profit anyway was the litmus test for for the legality or morality of uploading copyrighted material.

I’ll be sure to keep that in mind for all my future illegal activity.
