Disney Steps Up Efforts To Eliminate Star Wars Spoilers
With interest incredibly high in the next installment of the Star Wars series, it is not surprising the amount of leaks that have come out on the Internet about The Force Awakens. Each week, there seems to be some tidbit of information released regarding the plot, characters, or sets. The public doesn’t seem willing to wait until the movie releases in December. They want details now.
As Beltyukov stated, With so much information having been leaked from the set of The Force Awakens, Disney is now making a strong effort to plug all leaks. THR said this week that Disney has worked with the California federal justice system to issue a subpoena designed to identify those that have infringed on the movie’s copyright. The subpoena is largely focused on ImageShack, which is an Internet image-hosting site.
In recent months, there has been a number of images from The Force Awakens appear on ImageShack. The most eye-opening image was one that showed a Sith lord that may or may not appear in the movie.
Disney is taking a very strong step to get this and other images completely removed from the Internet. They also may be trying to make a strong statement to those involved in the leaks so that no more occur.
