Woman Filming Sister’s Birthday Party Gets Charged With Felony Movie Piracy

A 22-year-old woman from Chicago recently spent two nights in jail and could face up to three years in prison for taping four minutes of the new movie “Twilight: New Moon”. Samantha Tumpach and family threw her sister a surprise birthday party at the theater and captured much of it on video, unfortunately two “very shot segments” was enough to make theater managers want to press charges. “Tumpach insisted she recorded no more than three minutes while in the theater — and said not all of the video she shot was of the movie. There’s footage of she and her relatives singing to her sister, she said. ‘We sang “Happy Birthday” to her in the theater,’ Tumpach said. She also took pictures of family members in the theater before the film began, but an usher who saw the photo session never issued them a warning, Tumpach said.”
