Avast ye pirates: Fed up with the rampant bootlegging of movies by ne'er-do-wells wielding camcorders, the MPAA and National Association Of Theater Owners have recently come out with both guns blazing, teaming up to crack down once and for all by [cue "let's get serious" music] making a poster. Resembling genuine movie one-sheets, the new posters will display "ominous" messages like "Lights, Camera, Busted" and the slightly less imaginative "Leave Your Camera at Home. Do Not Record In This Theatre," underscored by a reminder that camcording in a theater could result in jail time and a $25,000 penalty. Video pirates everywhere are expected to…keep doing exactly what they were doing. It's a poster.
