Smell the irony! Go on! Smell it!

An ISP for the MPAA has been served a DMCA violation notice based on the MPAA's failure to respect the GPL in regards to a bit of spyware they were trying to foist off on universities--the spyware apparently contains Xubuntu code.

Translation: the MPAA got busted for violating copyrights in a "University Toolkit" they were trying to get universities to use to spy on students who might be using those high-speed internet networks to violate copyrights by downloading movies online. Shocking, utterly shocking.
