Anonymous boosts Time Warner profits with Guy Fawkes masks

Anti-corporate hacktivist group Anonymous has helped make the Guy Fawkes mask the most popular mask on Amazon, which indirectly boosts the profits of Time Warner, the company that owns the rights to the mask. Ironic, yes. But is it really news?

When you’re in the business of fighting major corporations, it’s important to not help their bottom line in the process. Unfortunately for hacktivist group Anonymous, whose corporate targets include Master Card, Visa, PayPal and others, they seem to be doing just that — at least a little bit.

The conflict of interest for Anonymous stems from the group’s mascot, Guy Fawkes, the 17th Century disestablishmentarian, who famously tried to blow up the House of Parliament on November 5, 1605. Masks of Guy Fawkes are often worn by Anonymous members at protests, and used in their press material and videos.

Strange Random V Quote:

The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.
