MPAA at it again.

The extortionist monopoly known as the MPAA are at it again. It appears that their latest tool to fight intellectual property theft and copyright violations … violates copyright. It is based on the Xubuntu OS which is licensed under the GPL. This means any software distributed using this software must have its code also made freely available under the GPL, which the MPAA have refused to do.

Whoops?
