Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One is scheduled to be premièred in movie theatres this Friday, but it seems that a leaked high-quality pirated copy has already made its way on to the internet.
Strange thing is, that the leaked copy only seems to be the first 36-minutes of the film, uncovering questions that the leak could be due to Warner Bros. studios themselves who are trying to drum up anticipation for the film, TorrentFreak reports.
Warner Bros. have responded to the leak, and say that it was not intentional because it “constitutes a serious breach of copyright violation and theft of Warner Bros. property,” they told Wired.
We are working actively to restrict and/or remove copies that may be available. Also, we are vigorously investigating this matter and will prosecute those involved to the full extent of the law.”
This is not the first time a Harry Potter leak has gone under the microscope, as a prerelease copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows book was also leaked online before it hit retail stores aswell.
Have you seen the 36-minute teaser yet? Will it entice you to go and see it at the cinema?
