It is a period of movie downloading. Rebel File Sharers, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire. During post production, Rebel spies managed to steal and distribute secret plans to the Empire's ultimate weapon, "Episode III - Revenge of the Sith", a blockbuster with enough power to destroy an entire planet. This from the Beeb:

Pirate copies of Revenge of The Sith have appeared on the internet
The final Star Wars film has been leaked on to an internet file-sharing network just hours after the movie opened in cinemas.

A "work print copy" of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith with a time code, rather than the finished version, appeared online on Thursday.

A tracker site showed more than 16,000 people were downloading the film.

More here, you Rebel scum...

16,000 people downloading the film is insignificant compared to the power of the Force. Even so, it was inevitable, I suppose, and it was only a matter of time before a copy appeared. However, I for one will not be downloading the film. I'll see it in the Cinema, and buy the DVD. How about you?
