How on earth do they think that they'll ever stop this?? It is a global issue that involves millions of people. By making examples of people which they have started doing already (so I hear!), your only talking a handfull of people!!
Big coperate bullies handing too much money to bent governments to pass such laws is just another example of the spitefull world we live in today! The whole history of the film/music industry there have been people out there pirating copyrighted content! I used to buy LP's copied to tape, why was there not so much of an uproar over this??
Personally I have developed a love for a lot of varied styles of music through downloading!........ doewnloading tracks and albums which has prompted me into BUYING originals from artists whom I'd never have given a second glance, I think this is the case for a lot of people who take advantage of the p2p software. I think after such acts of spite on the part of music and film companies I will download everything and buy nothing!
here endeth the rant :)
