Fwd: [free-culture] Boycott Regal Cinemas

Free Culture @ NYU,

Click here to help publicize this story:


We are joining the
a chain wideboycott of Regal Cinemas over their draconian punishment
a 19 year-old girl caught taping 20 seconds of the Transformers film.* We
demand that Regal Cinemas drop all charges against Jhannet Sejas, and that
the entertainment group issue a full apology to the teen.*

From a recent Washington Post
Jhannet's arrest:

"I was terrified," said Sejas, her voice breaking. "I was crying. I've never
been in trouble before." She said the assistant manager of the theater saw
her holding up the Canon Power
reported it to the general manager, who called police.

Sejas said she had no intention of selling the 20-second film clip. She just
wanted to show it to her 13-year-old brother, who had said he wanted to see
the movie. She was shocked when the officers showed up.

Sejas faces up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $2,500 when she goes to
trial this month in the July 17 incident.
spokesman John
it was the decision of Regal Cinemas Ballston Common 12 to prosecute
the case, a first for Arlington police.

While the question of whether or not Jhannet's Transformers clip counts as fair
use <> (it is our opinion that it does,
as it is private, non-commercial use of an unsubstantial portion of the
original), there is another question we should be asking, and that is
whether or not we should be patronizing a corporation that insists on
pressing charges against someone who is clearly not the intended target of
anti-piracy laws. Regal Cinemas should be ashamed of itself and its silly
zero-tolerance policy.

Here's a list of Regal Cinemas in New York City that you should not

We wish Jhannet the best of luck in defending herself against Regal Cinemas

actions were.

Thanks and good luck!
