HammRadio Today: 12/1/2006 -- <br>MPAA Endorses Pretexting

This is an easy way to make A$$-Hole of the Week honors... The MPAA has helped lobby to block a bill in the California State legislature that would make pretexting illegal.

"The MPAA has a tremendous amount of clout and they told legislators, 'We need to pose as someone other than who we are to stop illegal downloading,'" Goldberg said

The MPAA is strong in California. If similar legislation is brought in New York or Pennsylvania where the MPAA may not be as strong... it could have an affect. It's amazing that this failed.

  1. I don't know how this can be allowed by the PATRIOT ACT regulations.
  2. Allowing "pretexting" could open up the companies who reveal such information open to liability.
  3. How you can make FRAUD and IDENTITY THEFT legal, I have NO IDEA.
