MPAA says it needs no proof to claim suits

mpaa Apparently, the MPAA thinks it no proof should be needed to sue over a copyright violation, which for some reason doesn’t surprise me one bit. The MPAA claims that intellectual-property owners should be able to collect as much as $150,000 for a copyright violation without having one bit of proof. MPAA attorney Marie L. van Uitert stated on Friday, “Mandating such proof could thus have the pernicious effect of depriving copyright owners of a practical remedy against massive copyright infringement in many instances.” Sounds like the MPAA is lawsuit hungry again, everyone better watch out!
