Illegal Movie Making Charged
Felony charges are pending against a Putnam County woman who allegedly rented movies from local businesses and then used computer software to make illegal copies, which she sold for a profit. 44-year-old Charlotte Diane Hayes of Free Hill Road is charged with criminal simulation in the case. She allegedly told officers that she bought the DVD burning software off the Internet and that she has used it to make several copies of movies that she rented -- both for her personal use and for sale to others. A police report claims that she admitted to knowing that illegal copying was a crime.
