"The MPAA has successfully shut down an entire town's municipal WiFi because 
a single user was found to be downloading a copyrighted movie. Rather than 
being embarrassed by this gross example of collective punishment (a practice 
outlawed in the Geneva conventions) against Coshocton, OH, the MPAA's 
spokeslizard took the opportunity to cry poor (even though the studios are 
bringing in record box-office and aftermarket receipts)."
