92-Year Old Veteran Pirates Movies to Help Soldiers

Recommended Posts

Piracy is rampant in the US military.

Because the MPAA refuses to deliver entertainment to troops overseas, soldiers are forced to pirate.

Some download movies via the Internet, others buy bootleg DVDs, and there’s also talk about sanctioned “Morale” hard drives full of warez.

Recognizing the problem a 92-year old WWII veteran is also helping out. Hyman Strachman, or “Big Hy,” is sending thousands of illegally copied DVDs to soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The New York Times has the full story, which is definitely worth reading.

Worth noting is the MPAA’s response to Big Hy’s pirate operation.

“We are grateful that the entertainment we produce can bring some enjoyment to them while they are away from home,” a spokesman said.

Arrr..

boo yah!

Can't do anything but bite the turd this time.

The only thing worse than being a lawbreaker (even if it is a retarded piece of law-shit) is to be dubbed as anti-war.

So the 92-year old geezer has found the perfect disclaimer. Maybe from now on nfo's should include the following: ment for downloading by US troops currently in action. By downloading this you here by certify that you are a US soldier currently on duty.
