MPAA Backs Off College Students

After charging that college students were responsible for 44 percent of revenue losses due to illegal downloading of movies, the Motion Picture Association of America recently conceded that the number was closer to 15 percent. What do you think?
  • “However, they are 70 percent responsible for the ‘American Pie’ sequels.”

    Danny Chulew
    Receptionist
  • “I still don’t think that’s true, I only downloaded about 7 percent of ‘Spider-Man 3’ before my roommate told me it sucked.”

    Systems Analyst
  • "Movie theaters have sticky floors, and the concessions cost too much money. People bring their infants to inappropriate movies, where they cry loudly. Perhaps one of these humorous observations could account for decreased revenue."
