Noticed this on Phil Karn's web page:

    "The growing and dangerous intrusion of this new technology threatens an
     entire industry's economic vitality and future security. [The new 
     technology] is to the American film producer and the American public as
     the Boston Strangler is to the woman alone 

     Jack Valenti, President, Motion Picture Association of America,
     testifying on videocassette recorders before the House Judiciary
     Committee in 1982.

Valenti is now an advocate of DMCA, still using apocalyptic rhetoric.
Methinks this quote clearly demonstrates he should not be taken seriously.
