INFO TECHNOLOGY: Is anyone else sick of how -- in lieu of balanced reporting -- most news organizations simply reprint press releases from the RIAA and MPAA regarding peer-to-peer issues? Here's a nice sample of recent hysterics.
MPAA: Movie downloading is new piracy plague
A Quarter Of Internet Users Are Pirates
Movie piracy on Internet called an epidemic
Net piracy hurts Hollywood
Movie piracy on the rise
Broadband eases piracy
Internet piracy hijacks sales
Alarm at internet movie piracy
Download speeds raise fears of movie piracy
Downloading movies ? That’s you and one quarter of surfers …
One - in - four broadband users have illegally downloaded a movie
Illegal Movie Downloads Are Growing , Hollywood Says
I think you'd agree looking at these words that a real reporter would come up with a little less biased wording: Piracy, Plague, Pirates, Epidemic, Hurts Hollywood, Hijacks, Alarm, Illegally.
