Add an “F” in front of MPAA

Thanks to pajor for this one:

“The growing and dangerous intrusion of this new technology,” threatens an entire industry’s “economic vitality and future security. [It] is to the American film producer and the American public as the Boston Strangler is to the woman alone.”

That was Jack Valenti, head of the MPAA, testifying before Congress. He wasn’t talking about DVD pirating. He was talking about videocassettes. Good thing the Supreme Court disagreed.
