A St. Charles teenager has become the first person to be indicted under a new federal law that bans copying movies in theaters and then distributing the films over the Internet. 19-year-old Curtis Salisbury, a former employee at the Des Peres 14 Cine, allegedly recorded a number of recent films, including “Bewitched” and “A Perfect Man.” The bust is part of a federal crackdown known as Operation Copycat. Salisbury faces several charges, including one count of conspiracy and two counts of copyright infringement. If convicted on all counts, Salisbury could be sentenced to a maximum of 21 years in prison and be fined hundreds of thousands of dollars.
