MPAA’s “Human Error”

Once upon a time, the MPAA told a fairy tale that 44 percent of its domestic losses due to piracy were due to college students. It used that fairy tale to push policies and legislation targeting colleges and universities.

But now — oops — due to “human error”, it turns out that at best the correct total was 15 percent, and realistically the MPAA’s figures are more flexible than a Bush administration spending plan.

Anyway, I guess I’m just going to have to put down to “human error” those hundreds of gigs of  Divx files. How was I supposed to know “The Matrix” was still copyrighted? I guess we all make mistakes once in awhile.
