Instead of a camcorder to be used for ‘pirating’ Shrek the Third, the employee found only, “smuggled snacks and birth control pills,” says CTV.
In 2007, Julie Berthiaume took her two young daughters to see the movie at the Marche Central Guzzo.
She wasn’t overjoyed when staff, “rummaged through her bag with both hands in a very rough manner,” said p2pnet shortly after the incident.
She said she didn’t have a camera and wasn’t going to pirate the movie and with that in mind, later launched a lawsuit for $60,000 in damages.
“Staff at the theatre were searching customers’ bags for video equipment that could be used for movie piracy,” said the story, adding a Quebec court ruled the search was an invasion of privacy, ordering cinema owner Vincent Guzzo to pay the $10K.
