    It's actually the other way around. The US wants more capability to protect our IP internationally.

    Hey! I'm old and greedy but I know better.

    It's the tech stupid (and arrogant or they'd ask someone that knows) of any age or class that worry me.

    Hmm, perhaps you should read the arguments and concerns over these bills closer before coming up with such ignorant characterizations.
    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.

    But the penalties for doing so are extremely harsh considering it's a victimless crime.
    It's not.

    One person may not be able to do much damage. Millions do.

    The problem is, how do you substantiate ACTUAL harm versus perception?

    That's not really a problem; all you have to do is look at what every stolen piece should have cost. And look at the year-to-year lost revenues of the publishers.

    Look, it's harmful. I know you don't want to think it is, but it is. People lose jobs. Companies close their doors. Real people are hurt. Starting with the smallest and most vulnerable.

    Many who otherwise could have had careers won't.

    Plus, everyone's ultimately a victim, because the viable selection of "culture" diminishes, as does the quality of what's available.

    But the real question is, are these laws that are being proposed causing more problems then the problem they are supposedly fixing? And I think the obvious answer is a resounding yes.

    Not a point I was speaking to. I was responding to the notion that it's a "victimless crime."

    Infowars.com, is a paranoid & bigoted conspiracy theory website.

    I take nothing they say seriously.
