Submission + - Movie Piracy Claims Mostly Fiction

Justin Primus writes: "Michael Geist's weekly column (Toronto Star version, homepage version) dismantles recent claims that Canada is the world's leading movie piracy haven. The article uses the industry's own data to demonstrate that the assertions about movie camcording and its economic impact are greatly exaggerated and that the MPAA's arguments about Canadian copyright law are misleading. I particularly liked how Geist dug up the fact that the MPAA itself says that there have only been 179 camcorded movies over the past three years out of the 1,400 that the Hollywood studios released."

No man is an island if he's on at least one mailing list.
