Announcing: Freetard 2: Free Harder

When Mike wrote up his second of two posts concerning the question of who deserves copyright, I was excited. And even though other duties prevented me from my usual prolific pontificating on the matter, I was stoked when I saw the comment volume for the posts. Hundreds of comments! What a discussion!
And it was. But ultimately I was left with anger. Why? Because I received hard evidence that some jackwagon had apparently leaked a screen copy of this year’s upcoming summer blockbuster, Freetard 2: Free Harder. One of our esteemed Anonymous Cowards had apparently viewed this illegally pirated film and commented on its upcoming release.
My first reaction was anger. So I called up Joe Biden and asked him for advice on how to respond. He was kind enough to write up the following for me (and he made it clear that he wrote this all up on his own, streaming straight from his own superhuman ingenuity):
"Hey Freetard 2: Free Harder fans! We know that you’re all looking forward to the release of the movie next month. We’re excited too! By now you may have heard that an early totally unfinished version has been leaked online. It’s missing a whole bunch of stuff — including basic enjoyabilty — and honestly, this version isn’t a finished product at all. We think you’ll get a much better overall experience by waiting for the full finished product, but we certainly understand that some of you just can’t wait (trust us, we feel the same way!). If that’s the case, please, feel free to check it out, but please remember that this isn’t even close to the final version and includes an interruption by some guy named Copyright Man dressed in a body condom and a cod piece. If anything, think of this as a "behind-the-scenes" peek of just what a movie looks like before all the real "movie magic" gets put in there. If you do check it out, we hope you’ll join us to check out the finalized version as well on the big screen the way we intended for you to see this awesome movie. It’s just a month away!"
Huh. That actually sounds kind of familiar. In any case, I thought Dark Helmet Studios needed to get out ahead of this thing, so we’ve decided to just let you take a look at the leaked version here, where we see the lead actor getting interrupted mid-scene by our old friend, Copyright Man, upset at the use of copyright protected movie lines from other films. Enjoy (you damn pirates)….
