MPAA Gets Town To Turn Off Free Muni-WiFi Over Single Unauthorized Movie Download

,----[ Quote ]
| Amazingly, rather than admit that perhaps 
| that was going a bit too far in punishing 
| everyone in that town over a single 
| individual's usage, the MPAA couldn't 
| resist the opportunity to complain about 
| the evils of movie piracy again. The MPAA 
| doesn't seem concerned at all about the 
| collateral damage, and just thinks that 
| it's a good opportunity to push ahead with 
| its misguided complaint against file 
| sharing.


Nobel Prize-winning scientists urge Congress to act to ensure 
free online access to federally funded research results

,----[ Quote ]
| Washington, DC â âFor America to obtain an 
| optimal return on our investment in 
| science, publicly funded research must be 
| shared as broadly as possible,â is the 
| message that forty one Nobel Prize-winning 
| scientists in medicine, physics, and 
| chemistry gave to Congress in an open 
| letter delivered yesterday. The letter 
| marks the fourth time in five years that 
| leading scientists have called on Congress 
| to ensure free, timely access to the 
| results of federally funded research â this 
| time asking leaders to support the Federal 
| Research Public Access Act of 2009 
| (S.1373).



60 Minutes Puts Forth Laughable, Factually Incorrect MPAA Propaganda On Movie Piracy

,----[ Quote ]
| CBS's 60 Minutes has made itself out to be
| more of a laughingstock than usual when it
| comes to "investigative reporting," putting
| on an episode about "video piracy" that is
| basically 100% MPAA propaganda, without any
| fact checking or any attempt to challenge
| the (all MPAA connected) speakers, or to
| include anyone (anyone!) who would present
| a counterpoint. The episode is funny in
| that it contradicts itself at times (with
| no one noticing it) and gets important (and
| easily checked) facts wrong. And, of
| course, it basically mimics that old
| episode that history has shown to have been
| totally (laughably) false.


Dear Hulu: Stop Treating Me Like A Criminal

,----[ Quote ]
| The problem the industry is facing isn't due
| to some guy in Europe catching The Colbert
| Report from across the sea. It comes from
| turning off legitimate customers and users
| who are sick of being treated like crap.
