MPAA Also Likes The Idea Of ISP Enforcers For File Sharing
from the well,-duh dept
Of course, none of the big questions about such a program are addressed by the MPAA (or the RIAA, for that matter), but it's almost comically endearing to see the MPAA claim that this is a "win/win/win" program -- where consumers are considered "winners" because they're not getting sued. In all honestly, this is a lose/lose/lose strategy. The MPAA would lose because it would make it that much more difficult for the industry to wake up and embrace newer and better business models. ISPs would lose by having to spend time and resources supporting the entertainment industry's quixotic fight to stop file sharing. Consumers would lose because it would effectively remove a great and inexpensive way of both watching and distributing more movies. Hell, even the lawyers would lose because they'd have fewer lawsuits to file. Who actually wins? Beats me.
