There’s now a movement afoot to stop calling copyright infringers “pirates.” Said Agnete Haaland, the president of the International Actors’ Federation, on the release of a study by TERA Consultants for the International Chamber of Commerce that focused on piracy in Europe’s music, film, television and software industries:

“To me, piracy is something adventurous, it makes you think about Johnny Depp. We all want to be a bit like Johnny Depp. But we’re talking about a criminal act. We’re talking about making it impossible to make a living from what you do.”

Oh.  Kay…
