Road Trip to No Piracy

Publish date:

Hey, guys--

Wanted to post this great blog, courtesy of Charlie, written today by Brad Riddell, a screenwriter (American Pie: Band Camp, Road Trip: Beer Pong, and Slapshot 3: The Junior League) who also writes The L.A. Dime, a blog about life in LaLaLand.

He's got a GREAT piece today about movie and video piracy. I know we all hear about piracy, but I feel like sometimes it all tends to sound like teachers showing us anti-drug videos... we understand the message, academically, but it's rarely presented in a way that feels personal and relevant.

But Brad not only does a terrific job illustrating the personal effects of piracy, he has a great (and funny) story about outing the pirates out there...

Hope you enjoy!
