MPAA: we are pro-Internet and pro-technology

MPAA: we are pro-Internet and pro-technology.

Contrary to popular belief, the Motion Picture Association of America doesn't hate the Internet, just the illegal file-sharing, counterfeiting and copyright infringement perpetrated over it daily. Big difference.

Yeah right...it's already to late they already lost that battle...and minds are already made up about what their real motives are. And how come they don't say they are "PRO-Artist" and supporting the ARTISTS and the Music they create....Now there something they never seem to mention....

But most of all, they're pro-"earning lots of money" with the same material and licenses over and over and over and over again (for more than 90 years if possible).

Then again, who isn't eh?

Hmm... pirates perhaps...

consumers perhaps... ?

Yeah and I'm the King of England. All they care about is one thing -- making money.

But of course. Aren't we all? True some of us give stuff away for free but in an ideal world we would all get rewarded for our labours. Unfrotunately we do not live in such a world. Greed abounds. I'm all for making a tidy profit on something but these leeches want to rule the world we live in and impose their own set of laws and ideals in order to get as much money out of us for doing nothing as they possibly can. Even at the expense of our personal liberties!

The ONE thing going for the MPAA right now is that Century-Tel, AT&T and Comcast (65% of broadband customers in the USA) have all consprired to NOT offer consumers faster speeds through prudent upgrading of the network.. and the FASTEST of these being Comcast has very low upload speeds even for their 101 megabit download tier.. a measly 15 megabits. Not the greatest pipe to upload HD pirate movies on..

Contrast that with 25+megabit FTTP connections.
