MPAA head Chris Dodd bangs anti-piracy drum in Europe.

[newsimage]http://static.rankone.nl/images_posts/2011/06/X06W2m.jpg[/newsimage]When the Motion Picture Association of America appointed ex-U.S. senator Christopher Dodd as its new Chairman and CEO in March, it wasn't a leap of logic to believe group members wanted the former statesman to leverage the knowledge and experience he gained during a 30  year career to stand up against piracy. Dodd didn't let them down; he addressed that very issue in his inaugural speech. Now, three months later, and Dodd has once again railed against copyright theft - this time to members of the International Union of Cinemas (UNIC) in Amsterdam.

Isn’t expecting that kind of like having the “Nuts run the asylum ?”

They always harp on piracy hurting the "little guy " workers .
Haven’t all these workers already got their pay checks before the movies were released ?
Aren’t the movie studios still making movies ?
So these workers are still being paid.
Maybe Hollywood should only do live , untelevised performances & not allow any recording of the performance. That way they can protect their performance.
That way they won’t lose all that money to piracy.
They would make more money that way .
They couldn’t possibly make more money releasing movies to the public with all the piracy . Could they ?

But the real victims of movie theft are the camera assistants and construction workers, the electricians and the ticket-takers, the working men and women whose names don’t appear on the marquee, but whose livelihoods in countries throughout the world depend on this industry for their economic security.

Why have i never ever seen any news report or press release of some union or party about these kind of layoffs?
