HBO exec: piracy of ‘Game of Thrones’ is a ‘compliment’

Posted April 2nd, 2013 by PC Harris

So, if the conventional wisdom about piracy holds true, why aren't HBO’s president of programming and the show’s creators more upset about this? Probably because the conventional wisdom on the cost of piracy is almost entirely bogus, and there’s recent scientific studies to back that claim up.

With a Web-wide protest on Wednesday that includes a 24-hour shutdown of the English-language Wikipedia, the legislative battle over two Internet piracy bills has reached an extraordinary moment — a political coming of age for a relatively young and disorganized industry that has largely steered clear of lobbying and other political games in Washington.

Is 'piracy' theft? Shattering a typical statist argument.

Posted March 9th, 2011 by RottingNation

I dislike using the term ‘piracy’ in relation to copying or sharing music and software. Piracy, after all, connotates Somali renegades raiding ships and taking hostages. In these instances (as with all cases of actual theft) a person is denied use of their legitimately acquired property. When software and music are ‘pirated’, however, the original owner still has his or her property.

MPAA Boss Defends Censorships With Blatantly False Claims

"A bunch of folks sent over MPAA interim CEO Bob Pisano's incredibly misleading defense of the COICA censorship bill written recently for TheHill.com. It's amazing how many misleading or outright false statements Pisano was able to fit into a single piece but it's a testament to the level to which the MPAA must go through to support its plan for internet censorship"

"If rightsholders get their way, overseas pirate websites could soon be inaccessible to US users, lose their ability to process US credit cards, and be banned from Google Adwords. The Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act is back this week in the US Senate."

This part is particularly ominous:

"A service provider, as that term is defined in section 512(k)(1) of title 17, United States Code, or other operator of a domain name system server shall take reasonable steps that will prevent a domain name from resolving to that domain name's Internet protocol address."

Goverment I.C.E.'ing movie sharing online.

Apparently, it is now the job of "I.C.E" (as if they didn't choose that just to try to be scary), to shut down not only illegal immigrants, but also...illegal movie watching on the internet.

A popular site, linked here: http://www.movies-links.tv/index.html now redirects you to a super-creepy "we will hurt you" style message from your happy servants in the federal government.

Say what you will about internet piracy, but what does I.C.E. have to do with this?
