NEW ORLEANS - A Louisiana man received a two-year federal prison sentence after his conviction for movie and music piracy.

Federal authorities said David Norman III, 36, of New Orleans burned movies and music albums at his home and sold them out of his car. Customs enforcement agents purchased three DVDs from him while undercover in May 2012, and a search of his home found more than 1,000 pirated DVDs and Cds.

Norman pleaded guilty to felony copyright infringement in June, and admitted he sold pirated DVDs and CDs in New Orleans since at least 2008.

The judge also sentenced Norman to three years supervised release after his prison term is complete.
