I read a million people downloaded the unfinished version of Wolverine that leaked to the torrents. A movie reviewer named Roger Friedman thought it would be fun to review what so many people were watching. But he works for FOX News, a sister company of the FOX studio that is going apeshit over the leak. So they fired him.
This was not just a copyright theft, but a theft of his own company’s copyright. (Curiously, he was merely using what his company owns for his own company’s benefit.)
What was on Friedman’s mind? Perhaps he is a wise guy and cut-up and just found pirating from his own company a bit of irresistible troublemaking. Or, perhaps, like virtually everyone else under some ever-rising age, he just found it too easy and obvious not to do. He didn’t even have to download—just clicked and streamed it.
That was actually part of his review—the manic or childlike delight he took in describing how simple it was to watch the pirated movie.
