    They should be raked over the coals for that one. I say give them a taste of their own poison and nail em for everything Patrick can. Seems only just.

    Get a court order, get a listing of how many people visited their blog during the infraction and based on that do the calculations. Simple. ;)

    Funniest thing I've read in ages! It's nice to see they lead by example! :rolleyes:

    Mr T says...I pity the fools at the MPAA! :nono:

    Mr Robin should so sue their hypocritical asses.

    because like any other high ranking group.... such as the labour party for example, they are run soley by complete idiots.

    it amazes me how people so clueless get into positions of power and immense wealth

    Update, the MPAA has written to Patrik Robin :

    The material has been removed from our Web server.

    * No Web links were ever provided to the blog.
    * The blog was never assigned a domain name.
    * The blog was never advertised to the public in any way.
    * The material on the server was a proof of concept awaiting approval to move into production.
    * The blog was only ever used for testing purposes.
    * Should we have decided to make the move to production, then we would have paid the 25 Pounds that would have authorized us to run a version of the blog without the logos and links.

    Plagio: Got a link to that?

    I wonder if the MPAA feels the same way about downloading films. "It was never shown in public", "I was just testing it", "If it was good, I would've bought the DVD" etc.

    Now thát's complete and utter pwnage! But I guess the MPAA will probably simply blame the webmaster for making the website while using/stealing code. They highly regret it, and will take precousions to make sure this never happens again.... after which you never hear from it either.

    I hope they'll be sued for it, in the same way they sue other people.... and I hope it hurts in more then one way as well.

    That's the second (or was it third... who's counting) time they've been caught doing something that they were made to stop instead.

    sadly i read this on Saturday or something, after cruising to his site he said he wont be suing them or anything, he sent off an email and got the response that plagio posted

    Quite frankly, i think he should sue just because they go round suing everyone else for copyright infringement they should learn from their own blooming words

    Hmmm...I remember the MPAA being caught illegally copying a DVD before too (I think it was a DVD documentary about the MPAA and the hypocrites who run it, IIRC...). Anybody know what happened with that? Did they weasel out of any retribution there too?

    On the other hand...for some reason, I think the MPAA might be a tad nicer than the RIAA. I always hear about the RIAA lawsuits, but very rarely about the MPAA. Maybe, though, it has more to do with the fact that music files (being smaller than movies) are easier to share en-masse, and therefore are easier to get sue-happy about.

    I think Mr. Robin has gone about it the right way, showing them he's the bigger man by not suing them.

    I hope he encourages them to take a page out of his book though. "Guys, I could have sued you, learn a lesson."

    oh wow, oh wow, oh wow....

    i cannot think of a time or place where the adage that you mentioned:

    "people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones"

    couldn't be more perfect or true. i cannot wait to see Mr Robin go after them.

    "uh yeah...i was just awaiting approval to buy that software..."
    uh huh...riiight..... :thumb:
