    im also happy i never donated maybe the guy ran away with the money. I feel really bad for the people who donated though, I mean it seemed like it was for a good cause but still some of these people should have thought ahead of time and live in reality.

    The press release is there but you have to click on the picture at the top left side of site (it says click here for current releases) and not where it says "MPAA Press Releases". MPAA site has two press release links with one being current releases and the other is the press release archive. The link that says "MPAA Press Releases" is the archive as when you mouse over it the text at the very top of the page says "Press Release Archive".

    The one for Loki being sued is in current releases so whoever wrote the above article just did not know where to look when they said there was no press release on the MPAA site about Loki being sued.

    Very interesting ... but the document found by American Zombie on MPAA's servers basically makes it all fluff.

    This picture is located in the upper left of the MPAA main page and tells you to "Click Here For Our Latest Press Materials".

    I guess someone could miss seeing it. :rolleyes:

    I knew it was a fraud from the beginning. It makes me laugh to see how many people were suckered into that scam. I can't believe how stupid some people are, they also make me laugh to think that they would rather give a hundred bucks to help pirate a program instead of going out and buy the program lol .. What a bunch of morons ..
