Video Piracy

This morning, those of us on the Criminal Justice Committee heard testimony on legislation tightening existing laws against video piracy. The new law would allow police to arrest individuals who bring a recording device into a theater for the purpose of recording a movie, presumably to make copies for resale on DVD or via internet download.

If anyone has had any experience with this sort of activity, please let me know your thoughts. I'd especially welcome input from members of the arts community.
