Movie piracy linked to international terrorism


Movie piracy is one of those things that we all agree is bad -- but just how bad? I have friends who see it as little more than a victimless crime while the Motion Picture Assn. of America views it as something akin to the end of Western civilization. But it's never been linked to terrorism -- until now.

A new Rand Corp. report, titled "Film Piracy, Organized Crime and Terrorism," claims that DVD piracy has become a hotbed for organized crime, which uses the proceeds to finance the drug trade, money laundering scams, extortion and human smuggling.
