Harvey Weinstein, appearing at the UCLA Entertainment Symposium in interview with Ken Ziffren, Los Angeles’ newly appointed film czar, called for California to expand its production tax incentives.They chose to release the script to a host of people, one of them leaked it, that's why you don't release your scripts if you want them kept secret.
Where in the world would the public get the idea they can "take" something of someone else's? Does he not recognize how hypocritical this sounds after just calling for even more taxpayer handouts? This from the same industry behind the expansion of copyrights to life plus 70 years after death?
Of course, he then goes on to call for special legal arraignments to protect his dying legacy industry:
He said that the industry marketing machine should be able to come up with message of “what a lousy thing it is to do, how uncool it is” and “explain this to these kids who are doing this and proud of it.”In other words, he wants another SOPA through the backdoor. If Google wanted to work with him, they would have already. They don't, and the only thing which would get them to comply with wrecking their search engine to favor select Hollywood producers would be legal threats and government force.
Let me clue you in to why it's "cool" to pirate your movies: people hate you and want you to fail.
