You paid for an article,
about a company that convinced everyone,
that a free and trivial web proxy-cache is bad.
But paying them to do the same,
only _exponentially_ less efficiently,
is good...

The MPAA should take lessions from these guys.

I can't wait to take their model out back and put it out of _our_
misery. Maybe I should start an oxygen bar...
