First 36 minutes of latest 'Harry Potter' leaked online

First 36 minutes of latest 'Harry Potter' leaked online In what is certainly the most notable movie leak in some time, the first 36 minutes of the latest Harry Potter film are now widely available on the Internet.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, will debut in the U.S. on Friday.

The "extended clip," which is tagged as a DVD-Screener, has a large Warner Bros. watermark but is otherwise intact.

In 2007, a PDF of the book was leaked the week before the title was set for release.

The question now remains as to why the screener is only 36 minutes long, but the consensus is that Warner Bros. was so scared of a leak that they cut down the amount shown in the screeners they sent out.

It could also be that Warner just leaked the clip themselves to add to the hype, not that the Harry Potter series, especially this film, needs any more.

Regardless, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 will make over $100 million at the Box Office this weekend.

Just got a funny feeling. What if most movie torrents are uploaded by people like this, and then when it comes to IP Address collection time, they starting suing, making more money for the movie. Wouldn't be surprised, just a (conspiracy) theory though. And by the way conspiracy contains the word Piracy. :D

Why use torrents when there's so many other ways of getting it which don't reveal your ip address so blatantly to everyone? Silly noobs. ;)

Please explain to me how you can use the internet with a direct connection to the source and not have your IP address shown or even visible.

HTTP, FTP, TORRENT, P2P, NEWSGROUPS all connect to some sort of IP. Honestly the only way to not show it is to go to a Lan party or raid a mates HD.

As for the 36 minute leak it was warner, honestly. it is a screener apparently from warner and they are doing market research to see how much attention it get's so they can go out to the strip club to celebrate annoying all them fans out there with a 36 minute clip.

I bet you they been smoking something and thought it would be funny :P

What part of blatantly to everyone was in any way confusing?
Of course when you directly connect to any source your IP is visible but none so widely as when torrenting..

When I'm downloading, only server I'm using knows my IP and even HE doesn't know what exactly it is that I'm dowloading.... I feel fairly covered. I wouldn't torrent again if my life depended on it.


Oh, Im sorry... Did the middle of my sentence interrupt the beginning of yours?
