You can run but you can't hide from the MPAA

The Motion Picture Association of America, Inc. (MPAA) has expanded its crackdown on online movie piracy by filing seven new lawsuits against online sites. Websites targeted include Isohunt.com, BTHub.com, TorrentBox.com, TorrentSpy.com, NiteShadow.com, Ed2k-it.com, NZB-Zone.com, BinNews.com and DVDRs.net.

“Website operators who abuse technology to facilitate infringements of copyrighted works by millions of people are not anonymous – they can and will be stopped. Disabling these powerful networks of illegal file distribution is a significant step in stemming the tide of piracy on the Internet,” said John G. Malcolm, Executive Vice President and Director of Worldwide Anti-Piracy Operations for the MPAA.

Blame Netflix

I used to buy a LOT of DVD's but now i just netflix most movies and only buy maybe a couple of DVD's a year of the REALLY good movies.

and netflix has even affected my theather going as well..

when I do go to the theather nowadays, which is getting rarer all the time, me and the girlfriend rate movies as

1) OH..nice
2) nice..but lets netflix it
3) LOL..whatever...

as is known to us here...there are lots of movies that aren't worth the price of a matinee admission, much less the price of a DVD rental

maybe hollywood and the music industry should finally start to focus more on quality than quantity...but i dont see it happening anytime soon.

and even those movies that i wouldnt mind seeing in the theater, depending on the nature of the movie ie silly comedy..or serious adventure, the crowds that will be drawn to some make it so that i will wait.

hmmm....watch a movie in the peace and quiet of my own home...

or having to put up with people talking..large people sitting right next to you taking up more then their share of space..or kids bored and crying..and knowing you paid a premium to do so..

hmmm...tough choice there
