    Pirated motion picture content is illegal all over the USA.
    Federal statutes ban the production, sales, distribution of such content.
    Unless someone has large quantities of such content, the feds tend to ignore it.

    These websites explain the law:

    Simple possession is not illegal. Recording and sales lead to trouble.
    There is a popular internet site which hosts theater recordings of brand new movies and allows users to watch for free. The site has surprisingly lasted a long time, most likely because there are no sales and the content is provided by users.

    I tried to spam.
    I failed.
    The MOD caught me.
    Drats, foiled again!
