Feds shut down websites selling pirated movies, TV showson July 19, 2012 @ 7:44 am (Updated: 7:47 am - 7/19/12 )
Federal investigators claim Sang Jim Kim's Lynnwood-based company, World Multimedia Group, Incorporated operated websites that sold a large amount of illegally copied material, some of it downloaded from Korean TV.
Kim pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Seattle to two counts of copyright infringement.
Federal investigators say that Kim admitted to undercover investigators that movie companies sometimes complained and that Kim would remove certain titles from his website and then offer them for sale again, a few weeks later. Some of the films that Kim posted for sale were still showing in theaters.
Kim, 36, faces up to five years in prison and a fine of $250,000 when he's sentenced October 12, 2012.
