Boing Boing noticed the Finnish record industry’s regrettable new anti-piracy mascot. It’s so bad I’m posting it now only because Doctorow found it funny.

Stoppa TV-piraterna

En svensk tv-reklam (producerad av STOP, Scandinavian Tv-Organisations against Piracy) som förknippar försäljning av knäckta betal-tvdekoderkort med droghandel och människosmuggling. Utgivningsdatum okänt för tillfället.

“Att knäcka en digitaltv-kod är ett jobb för en HACKER! Men organiserade ligor säljer piratkorten. Att sälja kort är bara ett sätt för dem att tjäna sina pengar. När du köper ett pirat-tv-kort stöder du därför: droghandlare! och människosmugglare!!. Vad skulle dina barn säga om de visste vem du gav dina pengar till?? STOPPA TV-Piraterna!”

The New Pyramid of the Capitalist System

This has been all over the Internet for the last week or so, but I haven’t been able to figure out where it’s from (the images link to full size versions).

The New Pyramid of the Capitalist System

Whoever made this was obviously thinking of classic posters such as the one below.

A gallery of 35 anti-U.S. Chinese political cartoons (circa 1958-1960)

“Culled and restored from reviewing hundreds of Eastern newspaper pages and illustrations, this set of 35 images represents what we consider the best late 50s editorial cartoons (Manhua) from China and Indochina. Set during a time of escalating western imperialism, these images react against U.S. military actions in Laos and Vietnam, and represent a unique moment of political commentary. It seems to be a hidden history, too. It’s with some pride that we indicate most of these comics have never before been re-published, and even fewer have ever been exhibited or documented for U.S. audiences.”
