In what Boing Boing reports as a “window to the MPAA’s soul,” the MPAA has published a blog post where they accuse Ars Technica of having a history of challenging efforts to curb content theft. For anyone who regularly reads Ars Technica, this might seem a little heavy-handed. If anything, Ars Technica is only guilty of investigative journalism. They don’t ONLY challenge efforts to curb content theft, they simply fact-check and report on relevant stories. Yes, they oppose unfettered censorship of the internet on behalf of the MPAA. Of course they do. Anyone with any stake in the tech industry does. So now instead of focusing on attacking grandparents and children for file-sharing, the MPAA is going after the media for calling them out.
