Homeland Security Now Investigating Illegal Movie Downloads

Pirates accused of eaking a full version of the upcoming film Expendables 3

A federal investigation has been opened into the source of the illegal downloads of Lionsgate action pic The Expendables 3, according to sources with knowledge of the matter.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement, aka ICE, has picked up the case after Lionsgate made calls to several law-enforcement agencies to ask for help in locating the pirates, who are accused of leaking a full version of the pic on various file-sharing sites last week.

U.S. Customs was merged into DHS, and it investigates illegally distributed copyrighted materials, including media content. In the past it has actually seized domain names of websites used to illegally distribute media content and/or counterfeit goods. Said an ICE public affairs officer this afternoon, “It is our policy to neither confirm or deny that an investigation is underway, unless or until it results in some type of public enforcement action.”

I'm glad that Homeland Security is finally focusing on real important things! I guess the movie people take precedence over the illegal immigration problems, sexual slavery, drug running, etc. Homeland Security should be renamed OB for Obama's Boys with Holder as the kenyan king's head house nigerian. What an absolute joke to utilize precious resources this way but I know that the communists, I mean movie people, do pay large tides to the communist kenyan king. What used to be a government by, for and of the people has now become the people's number one enemy. Thank God our constitutional framers knew enough to include the second amendment! Have we had enough yet???
