fired, with good cause

Some people just lack common sense. Take this situation: this guy is a writer for for 10 years, and presumably he has no inclination to lose his job in the current economic climate. Still, he illegally downloads a movie that isn’t out yet – “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” which looks pretty awesome – and then goes on his column and explicitly states what he did while preemptively giving his thoughts on the film. What’s worse is that the movie is from 20th Century Fox, which is owned by the same company (News Corp.) as Fox News. He had to think there was a possibility of someone reading his column and “disapproving” of his actions. At least it’ll make for an interesting conversation at his next job interview.

None of this would be an issue if downloading movies was legalized. Lobby your senator.

He did enjoy the movie though, for what it’s worth.
