Nate Anderson at Ars Technica:
The Motion Picture Association of America doesn't like us. According to the MPAA blog on Tuesday, "Arts Technica" is a "tech blog with a long history of challenging efforts to curb content theft." (If so, we're the only such tech blog that actually encouraged a now-current MPAA lawyer to do copyright coverage for our site and that recommended the pro-rightsholder book Free Ride in this year's holiday guide.)
- The MPAA didn't even bother to get the site's name right. (I admit this is cheap and not really of any value. Typos happen.)
- Just because someone opposes you does not mean they oppose your stated goal. Sometimes they simply think your methods are absurd. This is like saying that someone who has long opposed enacting a policy of police offers shooting all suspects of any crime on sight has a long history of challenging efforts to curb murder, even if that person also promotes discussion with police leaders and additional funding of the departments specific to handling murder cases.
