  •  BS, it ultmately has nothing to do with piracy (4+ / 0-)
    The MPAA's O'Leary concedes that the industry was out-manned and outgunned in cyberspace. He says the MPAA "is [undergoing] a process of education, a process of getting a much, much greater presence in the online environment. This was a fight on a platform we're not at this point comfortable with, and we were going up against an opponent that controls that platform."

    The MPAA and RIAA don't have a clue about the internet, and they spent millions trying to kill it instead of adapting to it.

    There are plenty of people with new business models that work using the internet.

    P.S. The MPAA and RIAA aren't content creators... they're the suits and beancounters who insure the creatives get as little of the pie as possible.  The internet allows creatives to circumvent their schemes -- something they can't stand.
