  Boy 'caught filming Spider-Man 2'
Updated 01 July 2004, 13.27

A 16-year-old boy has been caught allegedly using a camcorder to tape the first showing of Spider-Man 2 in LA.

He was spotted by a cinema worker who was scanning the audience with night vision goggles.

He has been arrested. It is illegal in California to videotape films in a commercial cinema.

Films that are captured via camcorder are often sold illegally on the internet or sold all around the world as bootleg DVDs.

After allegedly using the camcorder at the midnight screening, the teenager and his two friends were escorted out of the theatre and handed over to the police.

A spokesman for film-makers Sony said: "Hundreds of people have put tens of thousands of hours into making a truly great picture and the notion of having it stolen and sent out for free around the world is just plain wrong."
