Piracy arrest at 'Spider-Man 2' opening night

Jul 02, 2004

A teenager was arrested early Wednesday in a California theater showing “Spider-Man 2” after a projectionist using night vision goggles saw him using a camcorder to make an illegal copy of the superhero sequel.

The U.S. movie industry is enlisting theater employees to help combat piracy, offering a reward of up to $500 for every person they catch illegally recording films and report to the police. This is the first of many possible arrests.
