Take THAT WB!  All I can say is – RETRIBUTION!  Now read the quotes.

From the Hollywood Reporter:

The claim comes from a German company called Medien Patent Verwaltung. According to new infringement lawsuits filed against Warners, Technicolor and Deluxe in New York and Germany, MPV says that in 2003, it introduced the studio to a method of marking films with a distinctive code so it could track back sources of piracy to the exact theater in which an unauthorized copy originated. MPV says it has been trying to get Warners to pay for use of the technology since it allegedly began incorporating the invention in prints throughout Europe in 2004.

“We disclosed our anti-piracy technology to Warner Bros. in 2003 at their request, under strict confidentiality, expecting to be treated fairly,” MPV says in a statement. “Instead, they started using our technology extensively without our permission and without any accounting to us. However, we had taken care to obtain patents to protect MPV’s technology, and we are now in a position where we must assert our rights.”

I got my SPF 100 on this, as I am basking in this for as long as I can!  I just hope that WB acknowledges just how FUN pirating stuff can be, and ease up on suing the World themselves…

Some advice for you WB:  Don’t ignore the first letter, maybe you’ll get off easy with an apology!

This is exactly why our software is FREE for all who want it.  Pirate it, we don’t care!   Well, don’t pirate it, you can just download it free and save some time…

    *insert evil cackle here* Could it get more ironic? I hope they are going to sue HUGELY so that WB gets a good taste of their own medicine.

    Great news. How does Warner Bros feel about being sued for the same thing they bullying other about. Seriously folks, why is there an FBI warning on movies? Too bad that Warner has millions of dollars to defend themselves. That cannot be said about all those individuals being harrassed by huge money laden corporations.
