Submission First Pirated HD-DVD Hits BitTorrent

eldavojohn writes: "In light of recent events, the first pirated HD-DVD has been torrented. From the article, "The movie, Serenity, was made available as a .EVO file and is playable on most DVD playback software packages such as PowerDVD. The file was encoded in MPEG-4 VC-1 and the resulting file size was a hefty 19.6 GB." In more positive news for HD-DVD, it will be the only HD format to offer adult film as Sony has stated it will not allow porn to be released on Blu-ray."

Talent does what it can. Genius does what it must. You do what you get paid to do.
