SOPA tabled, but RIAA and MPAA members broke their own PRO-IP Laws

It’s a rather amusing follow up to yesterday’s posts. Apparently, under the Prioritizing Resources and Organization for Intellectual Property Act of 2008 (PRO-IP Act), the very proof that Sony, Universal, and Fox stole from each other, is a violation of the very laws they were in support of. Gosh, I hope they didn’t pass any other stupid laws that would make corporations be reconginzed as people such that they are subject to the same criminal procecution as people—OH WAIT THEY DID!

So if by chance these hypocrites who’ve been robbing each other then accusing the casual user of stealing content, their is a very strong defense, WITH PICTURES (see that story from TorrentFreak), that proves that they’ve been committing most of these piracy crimes they want Joe Sixpack to take the fall for.

If it ever comes back—which it will and it will die in a spectacularly hammy way—SOPA doesn’t have a chance to become law, not even if it became a rider for some other bill unrelated to IP law.

To the folks at RIAA and MPAA: GAME OVER! YOU LOST! DO NOT PASS GO! DO NOT COLLECT $200. AND DO NOT COME BACK TO THE INTERNET OR WASHINGTON WITH YOUR HYPOCRACY!

Information is free. It’s the corporate crooks who make it expensive.
