If I Were The MPAA… How I Would Deal With My Car Break-In | Techdirt.

This may be one of the funniest (and most accurate) pieces I have read on the behavior of Big Content. There is no doubt that piracy is a real and significant problem. Almost as much of a problem, thought, is how the MPAA, RIAA, and the content industry in general are handling the problem. Reducing piracy of content and building a sustainable marketplace for digital content is clearly an appropriate goal.

Alienating your customer base, lobbying for laws that impinge upon free speach and fair use standards, and generally acting like petulant children rather than substantively evolving their business model do not seem like either the most efficient or socially beneficial ways to go about this. Or so it seems to me.
