    Look at the first posts in the thread -- they didn't even understand that this is about copyright law be enforced with changes in communications and information technology.
    This is really a non or bi partisan issue, copyright law has been unjustly extended to cater to corporate interests.
    Both parties have done this extensively, not just Democrats or Obama.

    I mean hell, Pete and I completely agree on it, that's gotta say something.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

If the feds have a problem with it, then block it in the US, but quit forcing US laws on other nations.
    The pirates have gotten creative in slipping around the law. Bit Torrents are mostly unenforceable.

    The Feds and MPAA are just getting creative in making pirating harder. They'll never stop it. But they can make it more difficult. It's similar to drug trafficking.

    Shifting the goalposts much?
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    That's like saying shoplifting and petty theft laws cater to retail stores interest.

    Corporations own the copyright.

    Enable law enforcement to better enforce the law.

    I mean hell, Pete and I completely agree on it, that's gotta say something.
    Pirating doesn't have a negative effect on your livelihood?

    People who don't want to pay for the work of others complaining about it? Say it isn't so!

    If IP were a physical product you'd be right but I really really don't feel like getting into semantics at the moment.

    The facts are that IP length of ownership has been increasing to perposturous levels in the last 100 years.

    Dead people shouldn't be able to own stuff and neither should corporations be able to retain monopolies for 90 years or more, by legal fiat no less.

    It doesn't have to be this way.

    That has nothing to do with what Pete and I agree on.

    That's not true either.
    Nice sweeping generalization.

    Ah so you only want to pay for certain products? Well that's nice. You're only advocating the thievery of items you like. That makes all the difference.

    If I made my arguments by inserting whatever words I wanted, into my opponents mouth, I'd be a super success like you.

    Your inability to simply run around and not present any real arguments is all I need. You and other attackers of copyright laws are nothing more than defenders of what in any other context would be considered thievery. Nothing more than little whiny simpletons who don't produce anything but want to get the work of others for free.
