That turncoat hacker for the MPAA is a nitwit...doesn't he know that Information (and the latest Hollywood blockbuster) Wants To Be Free??

I Was a Hacker for the MPAA

 
"Promises of Hollywood fame and fortune persuaded a young hacker to betray former associates in the BitTorrent scene to Tinseltown's anti-piracy lobby, according to the hacker."

Your tax dollars at work. Way to go, RIAA, for attempting to take away yet one more incentive for space travel :)

The RIAA announced today they were setting up a special prosecution team to blast into space to prosecute the International Space Station astronaut pirates.  

They were quoted as saying "we will go to all ends of the earth to prosecute anyone illegally downloading copyrighted material"

The cover for their illicit distribution networks was blown in an interview when Yuri  Malenchenko blatantly taunted that his stash of ripped music and movies from his last visit was still safely on board.

"There is some music I brought up and some movies," Malenchenko  said.
"There's movies up there, some will have stayed but we try to change them out because we have limited space and so we just add new ones. So we get to pick a new set of movies that go up for us to watch in our free time. And they've gotten a lot more capability now to send up short TV shows or other things for us, which is great, so if you have a favorite series of whatever, they can get that up to you," said  Whitson.

NASA when questioned about the rumours that their computer network was just a cover for distributing porn and ripped mp3's for staff issued a stern "No Comment".
