Jesse Jackson says the marketing of a videotape of his speech before the Democratic National Convention is "piracy," and officials of his defunct presidential campaign are threatening to sue the distributor.
But despite the threats, MPI Home Video of Oak Forest, Ill., will continue selling the videotapes, a spokesman said Tuesday."It's selling like crazy. It should be available to everyone," said Jaffer Ali, MPI's vice president of marketing.
The company has sold about 31,500 tapes of the July 19 speech at $14.95 a copy, he said. "We are making a profit from it," Ali added.
