What's the crime for selling pirate DVD..what's the punishment for it ?

Report as

Technically, downloading a pirated copy of a movie for personal use is regarded as theft. The criminal punishment for it would be pretty much the same as if you got caught shoplifting the movie from a store.
Realistically, however, there has never been a criminal prosecution in the United States of someone who simply downloaded a pirated movie. If they go after you, you will be the first.
They are focusing on people who sell or distribute pirated movies.

Counts as theft and you can be charged a very expensive fine and be thrown into prison.
