Re: Hypocrites

Ditto

Scary ditto....my 3rd Airwolf disk is waiting in my mailbox

(yes DVD still, keep one queued up for breakfast/dinner/etc as it's much quicker to load)

Between old TV i liked and older shows i never saw since no cable TV i still have a bazillion hours available out there.

Pretty much never bought new CDs, I did buy a ton off ebay at one point so i have most all i'll want. I quit buying new DVDs.

Movie theater is a bit of a drag for singles, haven't done that since the internet i can sit alone in the dark at home much cheaper. Maybe they need a singles night or something, the big pretty screen just isn't worth the hassle.

The only support here is whatever their cut of my $200 to Netflix is for the year. I've eliminated more than that amount just on DVDs.

Supposedly linked? The IPs belong to the MAFIAA. Meanwhile that is the same "proof" used by the MAFIAA to sue 13 year olds for downloading Happy Birthday and open access points (rogue users) are no defense. Rogue employee or not, it is the exact same same "proof" they intend to use in enforcing six strikes against mom and pop businesses that offer free WiFi, acceptable collateral damage according to the MAFIAA criminals. While it is apparently okay for the MAFIAA to steal software and engage in rampant piracy, they frown upon mom and pop businesses offering free wifi in violation of their ISP's TOS. Hypocrites of epic proportion, the lot of them.

I am not the copyright holder, and not being the copyright holder I have no standing to sue or file a criminal complaint. I can only point out their hypocrisy and the hypocrisy of the shills that support them.

Meanwhile there is nothing, particularly in California where these MAFIAA members are headquartered, stopping an employer from publicaly stating why an employee was terminated.

I don't think that's what he is saying; he is not accusing everyone in the industry of anything. He is saying they shouldn't be going after people when they are unwilling (or unable) to stop their own employees from uploading.

If indeed they are "MAFIAA criminals" than YOU should report them to the proper authorities for CRIMINAL prosecution, you don't need to be a rights holder for that, just a concerned citizen.
Failing to act would be hypocritical.
and Especially in California under the labor code employers are barred from making statements about former employees, without the persons consent (given to, say a new prospective employer as part of a background check) and beyond that, state law ANY statement potentially injurious to the persons future employment without proof would bring legal action, so even expressing your opinion (which is protected) about former employees is not a good idea, UNLESS you intend to pursue CRIMINAL charges and WIN. (any CA attorney would tell you to keep your mouth shut, no matter what, even the price of winning is too high)

Okay. I'll email the JD and the California AG but given the JD is also engaging in rampant piracy that is asking the fox to stop eating the chickens. I already notified the MAFIAA so they have no excuse for their hypocritical criminal behavior.

I am an employer in California. There is NO LAW barring employers from making statements about employees termination or work history. It happens all the time. Of course you can't misrepresent their work history or otherwise make FALSE statements but that is defamation but and has nothing to do with being an employer or not.
If you say an employee stole from the company, of course it better be the truth.

Certainly you too, a person of high moral standards who feels piracy is damaging the industry, should be obliged to contact the **AA's and the various LEAs and express your concern that their employees should be prosecuted for this behavior. The fact that you are so vocally opposed to piracy but apparently willing to give the 'enforcers' the benefit of the doubt is extraordinarily hypocritical.

Since I have no direct knowledge of any CRIME by anyone working for the RIAA or MPAA, nor do I believe the "evidence" presented in the link stories, there is nothing for ME to report.

However skeechan See Profile posts "MAFIAA criminals" in every similar thread about illegal downloading would lead me to believe either he has deep personal knowledge of CRIMES (criminal, not civil matters) having been committed.
OR
that he has delusional thoughts
OR
that his accusations are apocryphal
OR
that he believes his business or personal interests are served by the continual reparation of those stories.

The MPAA shills can spin this anyway they want. The MAFIAA was caught red handed pirating and not just a few files, but RAMPANT piracy, and refuses to hold itself to the same standards as everyone else. They are hypocrites along with the shills that excuse make for them.

Wow, guess that MAFIAA check cleared.

The fact remains the MAFIAA is engaged in RAMPANT piracy and software theft and they along with their shills that defend them are hypocrites of the highest order. The fact that the MAFIAA membership engages in rampant piracy and code theft gives everyone the moral authority to do the same against them.

When the MAFIAA decides to stop their vile criminal behavior they can start casting stones.

No genius. The data comes from Scan Eye. Torrent Freak just wrote an article about it. But don't let facts get in the way of your excuse making for the MAFIAA pirates.

Put different organizations in the search field and see what IPs that they own turn up...like the pirates at Warner Bros.

I am in the same boat. I don't purchase music cd's, I don't purchase movie dvd's and I don't pirate.

Why you ask? Cost and quality.
