June 4, 2007

“LOS ANGELES – Federal authorities have charged a Chicago man with copyright violations for allegedly uploading several episodes of Fox’s “24” on the Internet before the show’s season premiere earlier this year.

Jorge Romero, 24, used a Web site to download the first four episodes of the sixth season of “24” and then uploaded them to, according to a federal complaint filed in Los Angeles on Friday.

The episodes appeared online more than a week before their television debuts on Jan. 14 and 15.”
