The sad thing is, reading this story doesn't immediately raise the BS filter - the MPAA and RIAA have done and said enough outrageous things (i.e., the assertion that every mp3 player is owned by a thief), that this seems possible:
Los Angeles , CA - The MPAA is lobbying congress to push through a new bill that would make unauthorized home theaters illegal. The group feels that all theaters should be sanctioned, whether they be commercial settings or at home.
MPAA head Dan Glickman says this needs to be regulated before things start getting too far out of control, "We didn't act early enough with the online sharing of our copyrighted content. This time we're not making the same mistake. We have a right to know what's showing in a theater."
I can actually imagine the MPAA asserting that, too. It's getting harder to satirize these people - I almost pity "The Onion"...
