Web pirates steal "American Pie 2"
Author: JT Smith
Pirated copies of "American Pie 2" are making the rounds of Internet file sharing services, says this Reuters report on CNET. A full two weeks before the movie is slated to hit the screens in the U.S., the film can be found on Hotline servers around the world in compressed DivX format. No comment from distributor Universal Studios, but it's a safe bet they're not thrilled with this development.
