writes "While singing the praises of MPAA members at a recent Washington D.C. event, Warner Bros CEO Barry Meyer took a moment to bash fair-use advocate and CEA President Shapiro, saying that Hollywood is a great leader in innovation. Shapiro fired back, enumerating the ways in which Hollywood has tried to stifle technology whenever they were afraid of it. He came up with 8 decisive actions (mostly lawsuits) that prove that the industry is an enemy of innovation. Meyer may get the last laugh, though: "But Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) expressed a sentiment that movie executives were more willing to hear, telling the audience that 'I didn't want a level playing field' for the movie business. 'I want a fair advantage over every nation in the world.'""
