Via Michael Madison, here's a bizzare story about the latest campaign against pirated intellectual property. Yes, you read it right; the MPAA and others are using dogs trained to sniff out DVDs and CDs as a way of stepping up their efforts. As you might have expected, there is of course a "Keystone Cops" element at work here. Right now, any CD or DVD will trigger a response from the dogs. The copy of Frampton Comes Alive in your suitcase is just as likely to send customs your way as is a caché of 400 bootlegged DVDs. Great work, folks. Great work.
