Oh, Sure, Now The MPAA Settles With 321
from the thanks-there dept
Sometimes you wonder why they even bothered. After completely stomping 321 Software out of business by saddling them with lawsuits claiming their useful software was a tool of pirates, rather than for backing up what people legally owned, now the MPAA announces that they've "settled" with the company. Seems like a Michael Corleone-style settlement. Meanwhile, Jack Valenti gets in a bogus quote about how this shows that there's no leniency for breaking copyright laws. Of course, there's never been any proof that anyone using 321's software broke copyright laws - which is something 321 showed by offering a $10,000 reward for anyone who could find a "pirated" DVD made using 321's software.
