THREAT! Hollywood Moguls Stopping Obama Donations Because Of President’s Piracy Stand: “Not Give A Dime Anymore”
EXCLUSIVE: Internet sites on their SOPA-Strike may be conducting a blackout but Hollywood studios are conducting a boycott. Hollywood Obama DonorsI’ve learned that Hollywood studio chiefs individually and as a group are drawing a line in the sand on the piracy issue with the Obama re-election campaign and refusing to give any more donations.

The blowup came after President Obama on Saturday dashed moguls’ hopes that he would remain on the sidelines in the dispute over the U.S. House Of Representatives’ Stop Online Piracy Act and the U.S. Senate’s Protect IP Act. In a posting on the White House web site, three of the Obama administration’s top officials for Internet and intellectual property matters said that they share many of the concerns that the Internet community has about the Hollywood-supported bills. The trio said that they “will not support legislation that reduces freedom of expression, increases cybersecurity risk, or undermines the dynamic, innovative global Internet.”

Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator Victoria Espinel, U.S. Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra, and Special Assistant to the President Howard Schmidt tried to soften the blow to Hollywood by acknowledging that that online piracy is “a serious problem that requires a serious legislative response.” They added that they plan to host an online event “to get more input” on the matter. But Hollywood moguls told me they “didn’t know it was going to be as over the top as it was” and took this as a declaration of war. “We just feel very let down by the administration and Obama for not supporting us,” one studio chief explained to me. “At least let him remain neutral and not go against it until we can get the legislation right. But Obama went against it. I’m personally not going to support him anymore and not give a dime anymore,” another movie mogul who’s also a well-known Obama supporter told me this week.

The industry simply needs to adapt. Their response to 'piracy a' has been to raise the prices of movie tickets and iTunes tracks. They also are selling these DVD/BluRay combo packs for a small fortune.
Instead, they should be lowering their prices to entice people to actually buy their crappy products.

If new DVDs cost $5, I'd be much more inclined to go out and buy one. If movie tickets were reasonably priced, I'd be more inclined to take my family to see a movie in the theater. But when these idiots are charging $15 a ticket, I'm inclined to stay home and find other ways to entertain myself.

They have said as much.

You know why we have the VCR? Courts told Hollywood moguls to go screw themselves and people can record TV if they want.

You support SOPA? I hope you like the ability of Hollywood studios to shut down websites based SOLELY on CLAIMS that the sites have the capability to support piracy. Torrent sites have shown evidence that studios already abuse SOPA by issuing wide ranging take down notices based on half-assed search algorithms that identify media they both have no stake in and are clearly open source. Universal was issuing DMCA takedown notices for BBC documentaries.
(PS, THIS VERY SITE violates SOPA because of the ability to upload your own avatar)

So these are Hollywood "liberals" fighting against Washington "liberals." But I thought all liberals were the same and on the same side? I thought Hollywood "liberals" supported Washington "liberals" so how can they fight against them? And if you are against Hollywood "liberals" then are you for Washington "liberals?"

Sadly, I'm sure partisan morons have logical paradox dampeners.

It isn't about piracy at all, but rather to be able to control the internet. The internet is a threat to the PTB, because they cannot control the flow of information, which means that they cannot control your thoughts.

Now what you must do, is to determine whom the people in Hollywood are that are putting pressure on Obama and you will know who are aligned with the PTB.

The PTB just can't hide any longer.

We are on to them.

Fuck holywood and the music industry. Most movies and music is complete garbage only about 20% of all the shit they put out is any good. So maybe they need to be more selective in what movies and music they make ie:(good). But the truth is the gabage is made by the cousins and friends and families of the greedy assholes in holywood so that they can have a job too. I for one will never buy any mass media again from anyone and just play with my yoyo for entertainment.

Re: THREAT! Hollywood Moguls Stopping Obama Donations Because Of President’s Piracy Stand: “Not Give A Dime Anymore”
i have stopped buying dvd's, i get a few from the library I find the older movies more entertaining anymore, the others are full of filth, whores and idiots.

i have stopped buying cd's, I bought one for Christmas, that is it for the past 3 years or so.

my kids do itunes occasionally, but 1 buck here and there is it!

I listen to the radio for music, mostly Christian music which is supported by the fan base, very little commercials.

the family goes to maybe 6 movies a year at the theater, we go when the tickets are 5 bucks, never full price, and usually we just say (wait till its on netflix) or can rent it.

most movies are crap nowadays.


You can't have a NWO with a free country with a free internet, because the flow of information will get to the masses and inform them.

As long as the US has the internet, guns and food the NWO is shelved.

Stopped buying the HW propaganda a long time ago. Haven't gone to see a movie in years. Haven't bought a DVD movie in a long time either. Haven't watched a movie in my home on TV in at least as long as well. Nothing but carnally inspired garbage produced by the networks, as is all of the "programming" that can be seen and heard via media of all types. Garbage in, garbage out!
