Does movie piracy matter anymore? Ask 'Wolverine'


Next week is going to be a real test of movie piracy and its effect on box office receipts. Earlier this month, the movie Wolverine, a Hugh Jackman-starring spin-off/prequel of the X-Men trilogy, was leaked online, and estimates say that nearly a million people saw it for free.

Jackman, who's also a producer of the movie, told the press that he was "heartbroken" about the leak. His assumption, of course, is that a million fewer people would now be paying to see the movie.
