What’s being stolen by hackers:


Full-length features (“American Pie 2,” “Ocean’s 11”) and even dailies from films in production (“Minority Report”) are being highjacked from studios, print labs or post-production houses. The MPAA estimates losses at $2.5 billion.


Episodes of every TV show are available online (including the full run of Web fave “The Simpsons”). Copies of the fall season’s pilots were posted online long before they were handed to the network execs.
