Submission + - Jack Valenti dead at 85.

Unlikely_Hero writes: Jack Valenti, one of the copyright industry's most aggressive lobbyists, has died at the Johns Hopkins University Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland. How will he be remembered 50 years from now? As the man who lead hollywood away from the Hays Code which prohibited most violence and frank discussion of sex or as the crusader of the MPAA obsessed with the 'danger' of copyright infringement? http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18339220/
