Merry pranksters from the MPAA

It would seem that MPAA CEO Chris Dodd has completely lost the plot. According to a very angry letter from Senator Dodd, protests against SOPA are ‘pranks’ and websites supporting the Anti-SOPA campaign are doing it “to further their corporate interests”. This would imply the creative commons world, Wikipedia et al, are a bunch of corporate whores who have nothing better to do then take part in a day of worldwide hoodwinking.  Did congress change the calendar too, is it April 1st?

Same same but different

The uberlord of the mighty MPAA often pulls ‘facts’ and figures out of the air to prove a point. In fairness he’s not the only one at it, members of the RIAA must have attended the same propaganda management courses as the MPAA drones. They often use their own fabricated facts & figures to mesmerize the masses with their war on music. Chris states that he is diligently “protecting American jobs from foreign criminals”. To make matters worse, the formidable lobbying organization known as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce says pirate sites “threaten more than 19 million American jobs”.

Giving credit where credit is due, at least Chris and co are providing lighthearted entertainment during these dark times. The following video sums up the views of the MPAA, RIAA, US Chamber of Commerce and most US presidential candidates. Enjoy.

    In 2010, the Government Accountability Office released a report noting that these figures “cannot be substantiated or traced back to an underlying data source or methodology,” which is polite government-speak for “these figures were made up out of thin air.”
