Two members of piracy group IMAGiNE get prison terms.

Two members of a group that wanted to be known for being first to release the latest Hollywood films to the Web were sentenced to prison today, the U.S. government says.

Willie Lambert, 57, of Pittston, Pa., was sentenced to 30 months in prison and three years of supervised release, and ordered to pay $449,514 in restitution, according to a press release from Neil MacBride, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. MacBride is also the man who's pressing a separate criminal copyright case against MegaUpload founder Kim DotCom.

a hardcore piracy group who uploads hundreds of hollywood films before anyone else get $450,000 fine, but a guy who uploads 10 porn flicks he downloaded from their website gets $1,500,000 fine.
