Feds question Ohio man over Google Glass
AMC theater says it contacted authorities after identifying someone wearing a recording device
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Federal authorities say they questioned an Ohio man they suspected of recording a movie in a theater with his Google Glass computer-in-eyeglass device.
The government says no action was taken after the man confirmed the Google Glass was also a pair of prescription glasses with the recording function inactive.
The man was watching "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" at an AMC theater in Columbus on Saturday. Authorities did not identify him.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Khaalid Walls says the man voluntarily answered questions from officers with ICE Homeland Security Investigations.
AMC says it contacted authorities after identifying someone wearing a recording device. Spokesman Ryan Noonan says the company takes movie theft seriously.
Both ICE, which investigates piracy and counterfeiting, and the Motion Picture Association of America, were involved.
