Critic Caught Palming Off Review Copies
“A former freelance film critic for the Boston Herald and past president of the Boston Society of Film Critics is to be sentenced in October after pleading guilty in a San Jose, Calif., court last month to aiding in copyright infringement.
“Paul Sherman , 46, of Malden, sold on eBay copies of DVDs he had received to review, including Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
“One man who bought Sherman’s DVDs put several of them on the Internet, where they could be viewed before their commercial release, the Chronicle reported Thursday.”
