The Motion Picture Association of America lifted the veil off its clever prank today. Since 2005 it's been labeling college students with their fancy high-speed networks as thieving music pirates. It commissioned a study that blamed undergrads for 44 percent of the industry's claimed losses due to file sharing. Turns out the number's a lot closer to 15 percent. Too bad they didn't catch that prior to crafting the "keep Napster on life-support" education bill that would force universities to police their networks and buy paid subscriptions for their students.
