Pirates, beware of Warner Bros.’ wizards: Warner Bros. announced in a statement that they plan to probe the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I leak. The first 36 minutes of the film — which is released Friday in theaters — were made available on several Internet sharing sites like BitTorrent earlier in the week. Said the studio in a statement: “This week, a portion of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 was stolen and illegally posted on the Internet. This constitutes a serious breach of copyright violation and theft of Warner Bros. property. We are working actively to restrict and/or remove copies that may be available. Also, we are vigorously investigation this matter and will prosecute those involved to the full extent of the law.”
