Anti-fraud bill killed by… the movie business?

Yep…

An California anti-pretexting bill that would have made it illegal to misrepresent yourself in order to obtain information, was killed by action form the MPAA – the movie business’ lobbying group.

Why? Because they want to give themselves the right to sneak into your computer in their search for illegal downloads, and this bill would make it more difficult for them to do so.

 Who gave these clowns the right to decide what becomes law and what doesn’t?
