Man to Plead Guilty for Illegal Uploads of ‘The Revenant,’ ‘Peanuts’

William Kyle Morarity, 31, used the screen name “clutchit” in uploading the screeners. He admitted to criminal conduct in a plea agreement filed Friday in U.S. District Court. Morarity obtained the screeners without authorization while at work on a studio lot. He copied the screeners onto a portable drive and uploaded the movies from his home computer on Dec. 17 and 19 to a BitTorrent website called “Pass the Popcorn,” which allowed downloading via a peer-to-peer network. – Dave McNary, Variety
