  1. Talk about, arrogance.
  2. So wait, MPAA is sending warnings to Google? That is like being a 5' 2" guy trying to tell a 6' 5" club bouncer to let him in or else...
  3. NAMBLA Is the sister site of the MPAA...

    National Asociation of Movies By Local Amateurs
  4. He created the "commercial" internet, yes. (The Gore Bill in 1991)

    I remember the days before....

    There's an old saying that floats around: "Even bad publicity is good publicity".
  6. Isn't that cute, the MPAA still thinks movies are important.
  7. The North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) is a pedophile and pedarasty advocacy organization in the United States that works to abolish age of consent laws decriminalizing adult sexual contact with minors,[2][3] and for the release of all men who have been jailed for sexual contacts with minors that did not involve coercion

    quoted from Wikipedia, and the NAMBLA website.

    Partnership with the MPAA looks legit.

    Gentlemen, Google is Fighting Pedo's

    Not really. The internet will survive without Google. It has before.

    "The copyright holders hire third parties to track down people who share certain their content."

    I believe there is a typo in there?
  9. Time to disconnect the MPAA's breathing privilege?
  10. Apparently some people fail to make the distinction between Google search and the Wi-fi used by its employees and neighbors.

    touché ;)
  13. Oh, I just can't resist a meme...

    It's like they just tried to b**ch slap Chuck Norris. First one gets you a frown...
  14. Why doesn't CTRL+ make the text bigger? This is not acceptable! In fact it's down right annoying!
  15. Good luck shutting down a 3rd party such as Google for Search Engine results. That would be like shutting down Comcast for a TV show that NBC airs...DOH!!!

    You cannot keep warez out of Search Engines, that is discrimination. Good luck!!! Not like we have larger issues in this world to work on, I am sure the billions they make off these movies won't hurt the thousands they might lose on movie downloaders. Seriously?
  16. Egypt has an app for that.

    The MPAA hasn't figured out that its business model is dead , guess they should have Googled it !
  18. Well, let's see
    MPAA - based in United States (US)
    RIAA - based in US
    US government wishes to implement an internet kill switch
    US government worried about internet security issues etc
    US largest single producer of spam

    I think it's obvious -- take the US off the internet; problem solved
  19. You don't shut down google, google shuts you down.

  21. Google could just sue the MPAA out of existence. Or buy them and fire all the *****s there.
  22. Google will chew them up and spit them out in tiny, crushed little pieces.

    Please let the MPAA go after Google. PLEASE!!!

    That would be soooooooooooooo funny.
  23. or when ronnie reagan then georgie bushjunior pretended to be presidents.
  24. Just how brain dead are these guys?? It's a search engine?? hello??
    It reports findings based on key words. Even if it could filter copyright
    material which it can't the whole reason the copyright holder put the
    content on the net is so it could be found by a search engine..
    These guys are a shoe in for this years darwin award...
  25. Those who contral the MPAA, like the RIAA are not interested in American values, only American dollars. Controlling the Federal Reserve is still not enough for them, they want the lot.
