2600: MPAA starts new round of ‘threatening letters’


Author: JT Smith

From a story at 2600.com: “As expected, the Motion Picture Association of America has begun to threaten people all over the world in the wake of their victory in the 2600 lawsuit. This time, not only are sites that mirror DeCSS being targeted, but also those that merely have LINKS to other sites with DeCSS. The MPAA points to the anti-linking ruling in the 2600 decision and apparently intends to pursue people who type a single line of HTML — if it points somewhere they don’t want it to point.”
