Southeast Missouri Men Sued for Pirating Movies

FEBRUARY 15, 2007 - Posted at 7:50 a.m. CST

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - Two southeast Missouri men are the target of an anti-piracy lawsuit that is at the center of a dispute between Internet giant Google and several large media corporations.

Monday's edition of the Wall Street Journal reported that several major Hollywood studios have accused Google of aiding access to pirated materials through signing suspect sites as advertising partners.

The lawsuit, filed in 2005 in U.S. District Court in the Southern District of New York, sought damages from 26-year-old Luke Sample of Cape Girardeau and 26-year-old Brandon Drury of Scott City, for helping others infringe on copyright protections.  The men operated two Web sites that allowed users to download videos for a $29.95 yearly fee, according to the Journal. 

The two sides have reportedly reached an agreement.
