Man charged with uploading TV show to web

Before you upload your favorite TV show to YouTube, you better think twice.

Federal authorities have charged a Chicago man with copyright violations for uploading several episodes of Fox's hit TV show "24" on the Internet before the show's new season premiered earlier this year. 

Twenty-four year old Jorge Romero used a web site to download the first four episodes of the sixth season of "24" and then uploaded them to LiveDigital.blog, according to a federal complaint filed in Los Angeles on Friday.

The episodes appeared online more than a week before the new season premiered on Jan. 14 and 15.

Romero was charged with one felony count of uploading copyrighted material to a publicly accessible computer network knowing the work was intended for commercial distribution.

He is expected to turn himself in on Tuesday.

If convicted, Romero faces a maximum of three years in prison.
