MPAA: We don't need evidenceMikey 3 comments
The MPAA, the most hated organisation in the USofA (or is it the RIAA? they both are I think) says it doesn't need evidence to convict pirates. From the Torrent Freak article:
A University of Washington study showed showed how inaccurate the MPAA and RIAA's evidence gathering techniques are. Now, instead of improving their pirate chasing tactics, the MPAA simply claims they don't need any evidence to bankrupt 'alleged' copyright infringers.
The MPAA says it has the right to demand up to $150,000 for every illegally downloaded file without having to provide any proof that the victim actually downloaded anything.
I am wondering if this is only possible because of the particular organisation they are in. Could someone finger the MPAA for example and ask for $150,000 without any proof? I doubt it.
In any event, these sorts of actions just go to show how insanely idiotic and shrewd organisations like the MPAA and the RIAA are. I think the world would be a better place without them.
