+ - Visual effects artists use MPAA's own words against them fighting big Hollywood->

Submitted by beltsbear
beltsbear (2489652) writes "“The MPAA is so worried about piracy they are not going to claim that on the Internet you can do anything that you want,” he said in an interview with Pando. “When push comes to shove, they are probably more concerned about preserving the ability of the government to crackdown on piracy than on preserving their subsidies.” — David Yocis, a lawyer who has consulted with visual effects workers, says that the MPAA is caught between its two competing priorities, and that its legal filings prove it may finally be forced to choose between the two."
