Hurt Lock Producer's kind of a douche

picture unrelated.. but awesome

It was reported last week that the studio behind Academy Award winner The Hurt Locker was about to drop the ban hammer on a bunch of torrent nerds. They're preparing a giant lawsuit against tens of thousands of people that downloaded their film (and a couple other crap fests no one has heard of) illegally. Well, concerned movie watcher and probable bit-torrent user, Nicholas (last name withheld) wrote a relatively nice letter to one of the Hurt Locker's producers in response to the lawsuit.

"I wish to register my disagreement with these tactics, and would like you to know that as a result of these actions I am boycotting your films. The majority of the people you are suing were not seeking to make money from their downloads, and will be financially devastated by a lawsuit or settlement. While it is completely understandable that Voltage Pictures wishes to defend its intellectual property, this is an inhumane way of doing so."

That doesn't sound to crazy. I mean it's hard to defend stealing, but do Movie studios really want to start suing viewers? Here's Hurt Lock Producer Nicolas Chartier's response.

"Hi Nicholas, please feel free to leave your house open every time you go out and please tell your family to do so, please invite people in the streets to come in and take things from you, not to make money out of it by reselling it but just to use it for themselves and help themselves..."

Here's where it really gets good

"...I hope your family and your kids end up in jail one day for stealing so maybe they can be taught the difference. Until then, keep being stupid, you’re doing that very well. And please do not download, rent, or pay for my movies, I actually like smart and more important HONEST people to watch my films."

That's right, the punishment for downloading a movie should be your kids in jail. This is why I just make a copy of everything I rent via netflix, then sell the copies to Mexico. At least that's what I used to before NAFTA, stupid democrats.
