Piracy obviously isn't a problem...

Given they do nothing to stop piracy within their own ranks.

F-Hollywood, stupid hypocrites.

So because a few cops routinely find themselves opposite the law...

Yeah and if the police never bothered with an entire division dedicated to those problems, IA, I would say the exact same thing about them.

My implication wasn't clear. I was referring to our behavior, not our thoughts about Hollywood. I agree that they are hypocrites but that doesn't make stealing OK. Maybe I'm putting words in your mouth by thinking you support piracy simply because Hollywood is full of hypocrites.

My implication wasn't clear...Hollywood claims that piracy is the end all be all evil of the universe when obviously it isn't. Piracy on the evil scale is somewhere between not declaring use tax and doing 67 in a 65.

Basically clean up your own backyard before you come knocking on your neighbor's door.

It's like Mayor of NYC Bloomberg who likes to institute a lot of laws/bans, but doesn't like to follow them himself.

Its a power and control trip - using 'blatant piracy' as the means.
Corporations want 100% control of media - period.
