Obama - Vultures At The Door

Desperate to ensure their anti-consumer legislation campaign remains on target, the MPAA have deemed to pay attention to Obama.

Quote
Hours after Obama became the 44th president-elect, MPAA Chairman Dan Glickman applauded the Illinois senator's victory. In a statement, Glickman said Hollywood "stands ready to work constructively with the Obama administration and the new Congress to revitalize our economy and American's place in the world."

Translation: Let the lobbying begin.

And none of this should come as a surprise. The MPAA — the litigation arm of Hollywood's studios — is a certified lobbying organization that even paid a hacker to bankrupt TorrentSpy, a now defunct torrent tracker. The MPAA and its musical counterpart, the Recording Industry Association of America, began seeking the favor of the next president at the major party conventions two months ago.

Lets hope the new broom about to enter the white house is not swayed by these folks who have ruthlessly used to US political system to enrich themselves at the public expense, albeit with a little more class than the extortion favouring RIAA.
