I've just been watching a few dvds before heading out for new years, and as it happened I just saw one of the ridiculous propaganda ads for the various anti-piracy organisations played as part of the dvd.
You know the ones - they say stuff like "You wouldn't steal a car, you wouldn't steal a wallet, you shouldn't buy copyrighted goods" and leave you with the feeling that maybe you should be stealing cars and wallets, because that would at least differentiate you from those anti-fun schmos who work at Anti-Piracy central Ltd.
As part of this dvd they had this great English one, where the evil pirate had glowing red eyes and a big branding stick with an X on the end. It was hilarious.
This post doesn't really have a point, except to say that anti-piracy ads are hilarious in the same way that propaganda ads from the first world war are hilarious. Do the RIAA and equivalents really think these ads are having any real effect anywhere?
Haha, recording industry execs are such tossers.
