Well I've said before that politicians shouldn't legislate in areas they know absolutely nothing about based on what someone with money says is true. The same thing can apply to footballers making comments on anything but football.
The Big Six Hollywood movie studios are bent on making sure they, and only they, have control of the Net as the principal distribution medium for the 21st century, wielding their MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) as a club to crush anything and anyone standing in their way.
As part of their latest entirely self-serving PR effort, Time Warner, Viacom, Fox, Sony, NBC Universal and Disney have conned Brazilian football superstar Pel� into making an MPAA service statement slated to run on ESPNEWS, ESPN Classics, FOX Sports and HBO Ole during the coming World Cup tournament, which starts tomorrow.
Pel�, "embodies the notion of fair play," says the puff-piece.
That being so, what's he doing speaking for the MPAA? - one wonders.
He, "appeals to his 'friends' to 'Score a goal against piracy' explaining that piracy hurts working people - specifically the thousands of people who work on creating movies," it says, ending with the traditional affected, fulsome and insincere quote from MPAA boss Dan Glickman who says, "We are honored to have a distinguished teammate in Pel� in our fight against film copyright theft."
