+ - Jack Valenti has passed away

Submitted by norminator
norminator (784674) writes "Jack Valenti, head of the MPAA for 38 years, passed away this afternoon in his home. Valenti is known among the Slashdot community as a man who did not believe in fair use, including backing up your digital media. From a Slashdot article four years ago: "In the digital world, we don't need back-ups, because a digital copy never wears out. It is timeless.""

The degree of technical confidence is inversely proportional to the level of management.
