First Half-Hour of “Deathly Hallows” Leaked Online; WB Plans to Prosecute
HollywoodNews.com: Just days prior to the November 19 release of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1,” the first 36-minutes of the film were leaked online to various torrent sites. The leak – which happened on Monday, just hours after the US premiere in New York – has since been removed, with Warner Bros. releasing a statement vowing to prosecute the offenders to the fullest extent of the law.
“Last night a portion of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 was stolen and illegally posted on the internet. This constitutes a serious breach of copyright violation and theft of Warner Bros. property. We are working actively to restrict and/or remove copies that may be available. Also, we are vigorously investigating this matter and will prosecute those involved to the full extent of the law.”
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 will be released in theaters at midnight tonight.
