Meg A. Byte presents, "Piracy Propaganda" (20 Jun 2002 at 11:13)
Oh, this one's classic. In this Flash Movie presented by the Business Software Alliance, Meg is a hot graphic designer and software pirate. Then somehow her real-life design portfolio is swallowed up by a virus she downloaded, and she has to enter her computer to fight the virus and license all her software. Then, "Armed with the warranties and technical support that come with her license, Meg feels more powerful than ever!" (Since when has software ever come with a warranty??)

Regardless of what you think about intellectual property issues, this is a pretty sad attempt (much like those "cable theft" commercials, except even more grounded in outer space).

Perhaps the media itself is warranteed to be intact upon delivery. As opposed to your download, which may NEVER FINISH!

What kind of computer is Meg using, anyway? An Intellivision?
