A 2005 report from a company commissioned by the Motion Picture Association of America, said that 44% of industry-wide domestic revenue losses came from piracy over college networks. Well, I missed this study when it originally came out, but I would have called bullhonkey then, too.
The MPAA calls it a “human error” that led to the mistake and subsequent aggressive scapegoating of colleges and college students. We all know this was actually more like a “human book-cooking.” The new adjusted figure is 15% but other groups say it could be as low as 3%. I say it’s as low as EatMe%
The MPAA needs to stop blaming other people for their problems. Get with a new century business model and take responsibility for losses, stop putting out crappy remakes, stop putting out crappy sequels, and put me in an action movie with Alba as my love interest for crying out loud. That’ll fix everything.
MPAA Made a Huge, Beneficial Clerical Error
