Blame Canada

Occasionally you will come across a pirated DVD where the sound is a bit muffled, the camera is a bit shaky and the odd shadow of a person - probably requiring a popcorn refill- apppears in front of screen. Who is to blame for the shoddy camera work? Why the Canadians of course!

Read more in an article and post by Dr. Michael Geist. Geist explains why figures released by the Motion Picture Association of America and its Canadian counterparts demonstrating how Canada has become the world's leading source of movie piracy might be "more fiction that fact".
