Bringing A Camcorder to the Movies Brings 7 Years Bad Luck

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that a man who was accused of using a video camcorder to record movies has been sentenced to 84 months in FPMITA prison:
Johnny Ray Gasca was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Dean Pregerson after a jury found him guilty of three misdemeanor counts of copyright infringement related to his covert use of a camcorder in movie theaters.

Gasca was arrested by state authorities in September 2002 after being ejected from a private screening of "The Core." He was carrying a black leather bag containing expensive recording equipment.
Wow! This guy got 7 years of jail time for illegally recording "The Core." How much should the producers of the film get for making it?
