Catch Them If You Can
The MPAA and RIAA are cheering potential legislation looking to shut down foreign and domestic web-pages that effectively promote and stream pirated film and television. It's called the 'Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act' and would let the justice department close down these kind of web-sites. The bill of course is hopeful to protect creative content and brands that come along with them in order to keep the financial function of the entertainment industry stable. Downloading illegal movies has for too long crippled potential box office growth and in turn possibly assisted in the lack of consumer benefits in purchasing content.
