Speaking at NATO’s ShoWest conference, the MPAA’s Dan Glickman says the government should butt out and let cable companies and broadband providers regulate Internet traffic all they want.
Fantastic idea, Dan. Let me know what you think of that idea when no one wants to download a movie legally because it will cost them $75 in extra broadband usage fees.
Studios and their trade organizations need to get over this “but there’s piracy!” attitude and learn to suck it up and foster innovation, not just put a cop on every corner of the Internet.
It’s kind of hard to keep count of all the wrong-headed thinking in Glickman’s comments but it’s fun to try.
