Warner Brothers being sued for using copyright technology? Yeah.

Some company known as Medien Patent Verwaltung showed off some of its technology to Warner Brothers back in 2003. This tech enabled a way to mark films in such as way that they can trace a pirated copy back to its original theater.

Apparently, Warner Brothers has been using this technology for years without asking permission from the company. The courts are still reaching a decision whether or not the claims are true.

If they are, then you had better not get angry if I am downloading Smallville off a TV site there, WB.
