Starz To Take Legal Action Against ‘Power’ Leaker
It’s all fun and games until you get hit with a lawsuit!
Starz has vowed to take legal action against the fool who posted three episodes of “Power” on their personal social media account.
“The final three episodes of Power’s fourth season were leaked online due to a breach of the press screening room,” said Starz in a statement Wednesday. “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,” the home of Power, Outlander and American Gods adds. “Starz has begun forensic investigations and will take legal action against the responsible parties.”
That action may not be so hard to take against said responsive parties, as the leaker filmed the episodes off a phone and post them on his personal social media with commentary – so not exactly a criminal mastermind of Ghost or Kanan proportions at work here. By the way, even with the big HBO hack and the leak out of an Indian distributor of the August 6 episode of GoT last week, the David Benioff and D.B. Weiss EP’d show based on George R.R. Martin’s books actually went up to a series viewership high.
Although I didn’t participate in the tomfoolery, the leak resulted in multiple unavoidable spoilers popping up in all of my social media feeds. UGH!
Did you watch the leaked episodes of “Power?”
