Ferreting Out Software Piracy
from the oh-my dept
Not really sure what to make of this, but the BSA (famous for never meeting a number they couldn’t inflate or overhype when making their case about software piracy) has decided to go after the hearts and minds of children. Their method for convincing kids that copying software is “bad”? Yes, it’s a cartoon ferret with baggy jeans and a tight t-shirt. The ferret takes part in interactive games to teach kids all about software licensing (now doesn’t that sound like fun for your average 8-year-old?). I guess this is the “Smokey the Bear” strategy in action.

I wasted 15 min. playing pirate Space Freeze!

No Subject Given
Remarkably apropos that they chose a weasel as their representative…
Experts now credit the Smokey The Bear “Stamp out forest fires” campaign with contributing to the massive, out of control fires we’ve been having lately.
Not in MY State!
Better not let that Ferret in California! The wise and powerful Dept. of Fish and Game has deemed ferrets illegal in this state – for reasons unclear – that no-one can seem to figure out. . .
