In which the Mississippi Attorney General lets Jenner & Block, representing the Motion Picture Association of America, draft his letter. How do we know? Meta data.

The document’s metadata clearly shows who authored the document (Google redacted the author’s name), the author’s company, and even the template drafting program — Esquire Innovations’ iCreate — the author used to create the document.

(Perhaps Jenner & Block or the AG should invest in Esquire Innovations’ iScrub program, too.)
