MPAA Can’t Follow Its Own Rules
Looks like the MPAA can’t even follow "the rules". Now it’s alleged they’ve taken to hiring hackers to break into P2P sites to steal information.
When the law fails, it seems – the MPAA will readily take to espionage to achieve its goals. But, correct me if I’m wrong – aren’t they claiming to have "the law on [their] side"? Yet they won’t deny the discovery by TorrentSpy; and the ‘informant’ has even come forward and admitted his actions on the MPAA’s behlaf!
God help us (in Canada) if the government subscribes to any of the nonsense and, now, hypocrisy being spewed by these jokers. What additional evidence anyone needs that the MPAA is giving us a good fleecing on both the facts about what P2P is technically and how it’s only pursuing an enforcement of the law, I don’t know.
But the good news here is – it sure shows a certain desperation and I gotta think this means either they find their legal position so weak it can’t withstand the mere presenation of lawfully gained evidence, or that they believe that even the prosecution of such evidence won’t, on its own, yield the results they hope for.
