Guy wears his Google Glass with prescription lenses to a movie at an AMC theater, does not record anything, does not misbehave in any way.
Guy gets accused of recording the movie and grilled by MPAA goons (and the FBI) for hours, until they finally accept his offer to check the content of his GooGlass.
Then they offer him some free passes and let him go.
IMO he has some causes of action against these scum, but movie prices today can get these guys all the lawyering they need to bury him in procedure.
The saga begins with:
About an hour into the movie (Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit), a guy comes near my seat, shoves a badge that had some sort of a shield on it, yanks the Google Glass off my face and says “follow me outside immediately”. It was quite embarrassing and outside of the theater there were about 5-10 cops and mall cops. Since I didn’t catch his name in the dark of the theater, I asked to see his badge again and I asked what was the problem and I asked for my Glass back. The response was “you see all these cops you know we are legit, we are with the ‘federal service’ and you have been caught illegally taping the movie”.Of course the guy is 100% innocent, but what are these MPAA pieces of shyte going to do when everyone wears them? Could this be part of an orchestrated, bad-faith attempt to suppress the use of GooGlass (not just at the movies) mounted on behalf of the holders of intellectual property generally, who must feel threatened by GooGlass as never before, except maybe by the Xerox copier?
Only the future behavior of the MPAA and associated 'organizations' will tell. But I'm betting the feds will see quickly that oppression such as this is not a productive tactic.
MPAA members as of 2013: Paramount, Disney, Warner Brothers, Twentieth Century Fox, Sony pictures, Universal City Studios.
