Wolverine Needs FBI to Catch Cyber-Villain

12/16/2009 2:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Wolverine Needs FBI to Catch Cyber-VillainHe's made a career out of stopping super-villains like Sabretooth, and Magneto -- but Wolverine needed the help of the FBI to catch a dude who allegedly violated his rights on the Internet.

Some 47-year-old dude from The Bronx named Gilberto Sanchez was arrested this morning after federal agents claim he ripped a copy of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" and uploaded it to a website back in March.

Sanchez has been charged with unlawfully distributing a pirated copy of the movie -- which could land him three years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine ... bub.

They need to go after the Hollywood main guy who is distributing unreleased movies to hustlers and stop the root cause.

Dumb dumb won't even get to see any of his own stolen movies while he's in prison being deflowered into a punk azz trick boy. Now he can hustle some extra mustard from prison kitchen staff to put on his green hotdogs. Bon Appetit!

It's nice to know that my tax dollars are going towards capturing these hardened mastermind criminals! I mean - I lay awake at night sometimes wondering if there is one living right next to me. SERIOUSLY? There are child molestor's, rapist & murderers running about & this is the best the FBI can do? WTF?!?!?! I do not approve of Copyrighting, but at some point our GVMT has to prioritize their most wanted list.

Your name:    

Everybody is pirating movies all day long and everyday. Why do these random stories pop up from time to time? There has to be more to it.

There are some bona fide war criminals still at large in the USA and the FBI are busting people for ripping off Hollywood?

Hollywood has the FBI wasting resources on mickey-mouse [no pun] crap like this? Some grub from the ghetto (ALLEGEDLY) uploaded a b-movie that's already in the discount bin, and he's looking at 3 years? You want a crime, how about cracking down on the Hollywood drug trade? Or even better, check into how much money these people avoid in taxes? (Wiki "hollywood accounting" for that one.) There are definitely thieves in this story, but somehow, they ended up making the laws.

PS: Celebs are surrounded by paparazzi 24/7. How is it that no-one ever sees the drug courier coming and going?
