    MPAA: Kittens Killed By Movie Pirates

    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.
