Valenti's Claim A Bust – Again
from the that-won't-stop-him... dept
Duffman writes “As has been seen before, Jack Valenti will say almost anything to prove his point (valid or not). Well, one graduate researcher decided to test his claim that “…in digital piracy, with the click of a mouse a twelve year-old can send a film hurtling around the world.” His conclusions? Logically, that HDTV broadcasts cannot be recorded and transmitted in any reasonable amount of time or cost. Under current capabilities, anyway. Found on Metafilter.” Valenti has a long history of ignoring the facts to prove his point. When confronted with the ways in which he’s wrong, he never answers the question, but just keeps on talking. It’s amazing that the MPAA still employs someone who doesn’t bother to actually listen to what people tell him – especially when his refusal to listen is going to hurt the movie industry.
