MIKE FLEMING at NIKKI FINKE's DEADLINE HOLLYWOOD is reporting that a pirated copy of the movie "SUPER 8" making the rounds of torrent sites on the Net bears a watermark including HOWARD STERN's name.
FLEMING reports that the copy of the movie on the Net carries a watermark of the PARAMOUNT logo and the words "H STERN," and that "studio insiders" told him that STERN's show did get a DVD screener copy of the film, which recently completed its theatrical first-run but is not yet available by other means.
PARAMOUNT, FLEMING writes, has conducted its own investigation, but has "no indication that anyone from STERN's show was involved, and don't know how the copy made it into the hands of pirates."
