MPAA BitTorrent Bad Bad Bad

Remember all those things RIAA used to say about music piracy and Napster. Well, do a “find-replace” with MPAA and BitTorrent, and you get the same hysterical statements. MPAA president Dan Glickman says, “We must stop these Internet thieves from illegally trading valuable copyrighted materials on-line.” MPAA is blaming BitTorrent for Revenge of the Sith piracy. That’s like calling matches, not cigarettes, cause cancer. How about learning from music’s mistakes, and figuring out ways to sell the content legally? Calling consumers thieves, well that doesn’t bode well for an over-bloated, economic inefficient and perhaps the riskiest business model. via
