Relatively New Anti-Piracy PSA: Another Analogy Comparison of Piracy to Stealing Cars or an Effective Message?
You wouldn’t steal a car. Then why would you steal a movie? We all remember that famous PSA that ran on TV and before movies in the theater. Is the above PSA, sponsored by ICE, round 2? Or does it relay a different message? The IPBrief welcomes your comments!
According to a recent discussion at the Intellectual Property Breakfast in Washington, DC, Operation In Our Sites is now either adding links to the above PSA or in some cases actually embedding it into the seizure notice on seized domain names.
What are your thoughts? Does this new PSA, which makes a teenager decide between a free movie and a woman losing her job effective? Is the humor apparent enough to make the point? We would love to hear your thoughts.
