MPAA, Pirated Spyware, and Intellectual Property Rights

"MPAA gets a taste of its own medicine"
Geeks are Sexy (December 4, 2007)

The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) asked presidents of 25 major universities to put MPAA spyware on the university servers. Aside from ethical problems, the MPAA made a major boo-boo. Their spyware was pirated.

Interesting look at intellectual property and the Information Age.

Also, another data point supporting the view that American media companies, particularly motion picture studios, are led by some of the best minds of the 1920s.
