It's really outrageous that nothing has been done about this.  I think we have all seen the effect of this on various small caps, especially the foreign small caps.  Some of them got pounded into below bankruptcy pricing, and that wasn't all due to legitimate short selling and longs selling.  It's not just fun and games for the big boys; it puts companies out of business and raises their cost of doing business and causes real world job losses.  I viewed the video and was scared - a lot of people could be sitting there with BS iou shares in their accounts.  What I am not clear about is what it will take to get someone to shut this practice down.  Surely it must be technologically possible to better monitor this situation.
