The FBI, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the six major movie studios unveiled a new anti-piracy warning. The message, which now features two screens, will appear before select DVDs and Blu-rays released this week.
The first screen features the seals of both the FBI and ICE's Homeland Security Investigations unit. The old warning included only the FBI's seal. The message displayed under the seals is nearly identical to the old message: "The unauthorized reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal. Criminal copyright infringement is investigated by federal law enforcement agencies and is punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine of $250,000."
