The real access Hollywood

Summer movies are the mainstay of Hollywood, and summer music is the mainstay of the music industry. The widespread theft and distribution of copyrighted movies and music on the Web has spurred the U.S. Congress to consider a bill that would allow groups like the Motion Picture Association of America and Recording Industry Association of America to hack into computers they believe are sharing their copyrighted materials.

While they won’t be able to erase files – although that hasn’t been ruled out at this point – they will have the authority to shut down peer-to-peer networks that are being used to share the files. It also protects the Hollywood hackers if they accidentally erase any files.

If that doesn’t give you the chills, I don’t know what will.
