The MPAA Infringes Copyright!

Thanks to cyber buddy David Touve, I recently found out that the MPAA has recently released a software toolkit designed to help universities detect instances of potentially illegal file-sharing on school networks.  The only problem though is that many of the components in the Ubuntu Linux distribution, including the Linux kernel, are distributed under the General Public License (GPL)….I’m glad to see DMCA takedown notices being used for what they were originally designed for J.
