The FBI has announced that it will allow its logo to be used on stickers on retail DVDs, CDs, and video games, in an effort to squelch piracy. So, in other words, they're issuing piracy warnings to the people who actually went into the store to buy the products, instead of downloading them? That's like those "Movies. They're worth it." anti-piracy messages that air in theaters with the coming attractions: Thanks for warning me not to pirate the movie after I've already paid eight bucks to see it. Assholes.

Have either of you ever seen Amazon Women ont he Moon, the sorta-sequel to Kentucky Fried Movie? There's a nice sequence featuring actual "Argh! Matey!" pirates mocking the FBI warning on a videocassette found among their treasure. "Oh, no the FBI! Oooh! Hahahahaha" and so on.
