Too Long; Didn't Read

UK man who leaked pre-release movies online has been sentenced to 27 months in prison after pleading to one count of conspiracy to defraud. Malik Luqman Farooq of Halifax was part of a group that obtained copies of movies from a post-production company in the United States. In 2018, a federal grand jury in California indicted five men for allegedly offering pre-released copies of hundreds of movies and TV shows via the Internet. In the U.S., the men are listed as one of the suspects.
