MPAA Says No Proof Needed in P2P Copyright Infringement Lawsuits
This quote is from Marie L. van Uitert, an attorney for the MPAA. Please consider this the most jaw-dropping statement I’ve heard in a long time:
Mandating [proof of copyright infringement] could thus have the pernicious effect of depriving copyright owners of a practical remedy against massive copyright infringement in many instances
Translation: proving that the people we sue did what we say they did is hard, so can we be exempt from the burden of proof?
