Two weeks ago we reported on a “we the people” petition asking the White House to investigate the MPAA’s alleged bribery practices.
A few days ago the petition reached its goal of 25.000 votes, and the Obama administration has now issued an official response.
“We appreciate your participation in the We the People platform on WhiteHouse.gov,” the note starts.
“However, consistent with the We the People Terms of Participation and our responses to similar petitions in the past, the White House declines comment on this petition because it requests a specific law enforcement action.”
As far as we know, no official complaints have been filed against the MPAA.
However, several citizen rights groups have put pressure on Congress to return “Hollywood’s dirty money.”This post is from the News Bits section of TorrentFreak where we present stories from around the web in a concise summary format.
