Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, May 18, 2014

TorrentFreak: In 2010 Richard Humphrey was sentenced to 29 months in prison for operating several pirate sites, including the popular USAWarez.com and USATorrents.com. This time he was sent to Lorain Correctional Institution in Ohio, where he was surprised to see that pirated copies of Ride Along and Wolf of Wall Street were being played for inmates. "If people are going to prison for copyright infringement, prison mind you, where they are supposed to be paying their debt to society and rehabilitate for their crimes? How is it that the prison itself is showing pirated movies?" Humphrey says.

This will soon be a movie for sure.

Which, of course, will be pirated.

I have over 3 terabytes of video files for movies and TV shows, most of which are pirated. I don't use dvd or br anymore.

Next thing you know they'll be serving them pot. Not a bad idea actually. It would mellow them out and cut down on violence. And they'd sell a lot more munchies.

That's wrong on a couple of levels.

Interesting (no actually outrageous) how Hollywood has their (mostly lack of) intellectual property protected by the FBI via taxpayers, while USA taxpayers and citizens have their real intellectual property stolen by business interests who force Americans to compete with H1Bs and illegal immigrants.

This is just part and parcel for the United States government and correctional institutions all over this nation. Like the United States government, law enforcement in the United States, and the department of corrections in this nation truly believe they are above the law! All you have to do is read the news on any given day to confirm this. They (government entities )continually get a pass from the lame stream media because the media has very little morals or values themselves and have no clue what being a real journalist entails!

Our fore-fathers would be aghast at what the media has evolved to be in the past fifty years or so. The whole point of having a free press was to keep the government in check and to make it transparent.

I don't expect perfection, but the above agencies know right from wrong, the problem is they choose wrong most of the time and they do it because they know they can get away with it!

Its certainly pathetic, and it goes to the kind of people we have running this country, and the rest of us commoners!

BINGO! Elites have commonality and so do serfs. The elites and their $ clout use that commonality to advance only their own, and not America.

When pirated videos are outlawed only pirates will have videos about outlaws.

Or something like that.
