Every year the MPAA spends millions of dollars in Washington to guarantee their anti-piracy interests are secured. In the most recent quarter the Hollywood group added several of its topics to the agenda of U.S.
While the MPAA is busy reporting piracy-promoting websites to the government, everyone else is using this list to get all the free content they want. Leave it to the entertainment industry to shoot themselves in the foot any chance they get. :rolleyes:
Earlier this week, we wrote about the MPAA's announced plans to sue Megaupload in a civil lawsuit to pile on to the criminal charges the company is already facing. As we noted, there's no legitimate reason for such a lawsuit, given the criminal lawsuit already underway, other than as a way to try to get a favorable court ruling it can use against others.
Does it really matter that the MPAA settled for $4 million instead of the reported $80 million? Hotfile didn't have $4 let alone $4 million and they shut down immediately after the settlement so what does it matter now?
Last December the MPAA announced one of its biggest victories to date.
