[News] MAFIAA/Copyright Cartel Displays Hypocrisy, Sues People Still

MPAA Shows How Teachers Should Record Movies By Camcording Their TVs

,----[ Quote ]
| But, of course, the process also has some requests in the other direction as 
| well... The entertainment industry, for example, would like fewer examples. 
| Kevin alerts us to some video of a recent hearing, where the MPAA actually 
| (you have to see it to believe it) demonstrates how to use a camcorder to 
| videotape a movie off a TV...    


MPAA Proof of Concept: Copy DVDs by Pointing Camera at Screen

,----[ Quote ]
| It’s hard to believe that this video is real, but apparently it is. What you 
| are seeing is the official, MPAA sanctioned method for teachers to make 
| copies of DVDs for educational purposes. Are you ready? To make a copy you 
| play the DVD and aim a camera at the TV screen. I told you it was hard to 
| swallow.    


RIAA Sues Even More File-Sharers

,----[ Quote ]
| Targets 3 more in the New York area alone.



The RIAA vs. 19 Year Old Cancer Patient

,----[ Quote ]
| Among the RIAA's latest targets in its campaign to sue its customer base into
| submission is a 19-year-old cancer patient. Ciaro Sauro was ruled a music
| pirate after failing to defend herself in court against charges from the RIAA
| that she was sharing music files online. Ms. Sauro has said she couldn't
| defend herself as she is hospitalized once a week, and vehemently denies the
| allegations that she is a pirate.


RIAA Sued For Racketeering Yet Again

,----[ Quote ]
| A few people have filed lawsuits against the RIAA for racketeering in the
| past, though these charges have always been dismissed. In one such case,
| where the filed charges were dismissed over the summer, new claims were filed
| again charging the RIAA with racketeering for extortion, mail fraud and wire
| fraud in its ongoing efforts involving weakly supported threats against
| alleged file sharers demanding money to avoid being sued.


RIAA lied to the US Congress

,----[ Quote ]
| In April the RIAA told US lawmakers that it was not going to chase individual
| file-sharers any more and was going to stop dragging grannies, homeless
| people and kids into court using dodgy evidence obtained by methods that
| seemed to break some state laws.


RIAA: "we have no choice" but to file more named lawsuits

,----[ Quote ]
| The RIAA said it would file no more "new" lawsuits against individual
| file-swappers, but it filed more such lawsuits in April. How to explain the
| apparent contradiction? By defining "new" in a particular way.
