“Legal or illegal baby I gotta make it.”
Which is probably what the person who leaked the three remaining episodes of the STARZ hit show, “Power” thought before he committed the act; not knowing that they were going to REALLY take legal action.
Or, maybe he knew and didn’t care!
According to Deadline, in a released statement STARZ executives had this to say about the action:
“The final three episodes of Power’s fourth season were leaked online due to a breach of the press screening room. This seems to be a case of password sharing that resulted in homemade videos of the episodes which were taped off a TV screen and posted online. Starz has begun forensic investigations and will take legal action against the responsible parties.”
As many outlets have already mentioned, the chase may NOT be hard considering the fact that the person recorded the episode on his cellular device which also happened to caption his commentary in the background!
Witty Genius, huh?!
Nonetheless, what does this mean for press?
Well, it means that now we’ll have to go through even MORE loop holes for pre-screenings which will be tighter security measures, embargo’s, etc…..
