… and just who considers what a strike is and when it occurs? Sounds like the MPAA doesn’t care who actually downloads a file, just kill them all on the account and let God sort them out. They must be morphing into the RIAA.

I seriously doubt that anyone in Japan is getting their panties in a bunch over the MPAA. Given that the MPAA membership can’t even ponder making a movie without technology from Japan, that Japan has a perfectly healthy movie industry of its own and the idea that is Sony never made a cent off another movie it wouldn’t do much to impact that gigantic Sony bottom line anyway; I think the MPAA better just stick to buying off U.S. politicians where they have an ear.

The 3 strike rule on belongs in baseball, softball, and felony/drug related crimes IMO. :iagree:
