Leader of Ninjavideo online piracy site gets prison

Most videos were free, but users could pay $25 to access forums with a wider range of material. Some videos, including the hit 2009 movie "Avatar," were posted on NinjaVideo before their release in theaters, according to court documents. 

The site was seized as part of the ongoing "Operation In Our Sites" campaign by the Department of Justice and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Founder Hana Beshara was sentenced to 22 months in jail earlier this month.
