Whoa....This is interesting:
THE MPAA retracted the findings of a study it used to push for anti-file-sharing legislation since 2005. The Association had consistently claimed that 44% of the movie industry’s domestic losses were caused by illegal downloading of movies on college campuses. However, the true number was actually 15%. The MPAA blames “human error” for the mixup.It took them 3 years to figure this out?
If I do 'human error' stuff like that, the people I know call it 'lying'.
If I then use it to try to change the law, as the MPAA did here, everyone I know calls it 'fraud'.
But hey, that's just me.
