Default "Don't copy that floppy 2"

Here's an email that the president of the SIAA sent to some people in the software business

From: Ken Wasch

Subject: SIIA Launches Don't Copy That Floppy Sequel


Today, SIIA launches its new anti-piracy video - “Don’t Copy That 2”. The video is a sequel to our 1992 “Don’t Copy That Floppy”video, which was a huge success in schools throughout the country and eventually became a cult phenomenon on YouTube.

The new video marks the return of MC Double Def DP, aka Digital Protector, as he continues his crusade against pirates of copyrighted works through rap music and humor - we’ve even included dancing Klingons! You can view the video on the Don’t Copy That Website or search for it on YouTube.

The video is intended to be fun to watch while also conveying the message that pirating software and content carries stiff penalties and can ruin your life. We hope “Don’t Copy That 2” will prevent piracy by helping people make better choices when it comes to downloading or purchasing copyrighted works. The video even concludes with an appearance from convicted software pirate Jeremiah Mondello, who issues a warning about the consequences of software piracy from a federal prison in Oregon.

As part of our outreach efforts, the Wall Street Journal provided exclusive coverage yesterday, including posting the “Don’t Copy That 2” video. Click here to see the article.

To expand our outreach to students with the new campaign, we will release an extended educational version of “Don’t Copy That 2” that will be distributed to classrooms later this year.

Please watch “Don’t Copy That 2,” rate it highly on YouTube, and share it with colleagues, friends, and especially teenagers with huge social networks of their own. The higher the ratings, the more visible the video will be to others and the more you’ll help us spread our anti-piracy message.

You can also download a copy of the video in podcast form on iTunes. Just search for “Don’t Copy That Floppy 2”.

Enjoy the video, and thanks for your help in getting it broadly distributed. If you have any questions, please contact Keith Kupferschmid, SVP Intellectual Property Policy & Enforcement, +1.202.789.4442.

Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
