Can Jackie Chans magnetism stop piracy?
Here’s the latest message from movie makers to the people of China: If you buy legal DVD’s instead of pirated ones, we’ll give you a refrigerator magnet. The Motion Picture Association plans to distribute hundreds of thousands of magnets bearing a message from actor Jackie Chan. It says, “Thank you for Purchasing Legitimate DVD’s. Your action determines the future of the film industry.” Chan says he hopes the magnets will encourage people to tell their children that piracy is wrong.
