MPAA needs to pay for shareware

MPAA needs to pay for shareware

Oops! The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) today proudly unveiled its latest study of losses to piracy. However, if you want to look at the data summary PDF, you are greeted with a watermark warning that reads, "Created by eDocPrinter PDF Pro!! Buy Now to Create PDF without Trial Watermark!!" I understand the need to get the numbers out quickly, but I hope the MPAA intends to pay the creators of the software the money they rightly deserve. I estimate eDocs losses at about $39 for that piece of software.

Update 4:34 p.m.: The watermark is gone now when you visit the link. So either it was an error, or the MPAA did the right thing.
