You would think that with the MPAA suing people left and right for copyright infringement and with movies like Ghost Rider climbing to the Number 1 spot you’d think it’d have $50 to throw a blogger for his software.
“Think again!” cries Patrick Robin, designer of the Forest Blog publishing platform. Robin recently discovered that the MPAA’s blog (currently down) is using his software without having paid the proper licensing fees – 10 British Pounds for a personal license, 25 Pounds for a commercial license.
So has Robin gotten his money yet? Nope. The MPAA has yet to reply to a letter he wrote regarding the theft of his code.
