In this country, we are noted for our intelligent legislators, who love to follow directives from both the European Commission and, not least, such popularly elected bodies as the RIAA and the MPAA, who naturally exercise unlimited jurisdiction here. Way to go, Sveriges (?) Riksdag !...
To me, this is just another method of control by governments. Information and knowledge is power. In order to maintain that power, it is better to feed people false information and break apart ties, hence lead the people to "pick sides". However, the internet has bridged that gap, in that it can allow people to organize, share and make better, more informed decisions. Therefore, those in power will like to see this all disappear, or control it enough to continue what their style of rule.
I am making this comment because it seems to be the guise in which governments can, let's say legitimize their control over the internet. So you will see more of the copyright and the all famous bullshit "protect the children" line of reasoning being used. Keep watching.
I think if we all watch the southpark episode about music pirating....that's all anyone needs to know really.
(The jist of it is that because consumers steal music various artists can no longer buy Lamborghinis but instead have to settle for high-end Porches, etc.)
Not that I am pro-stealing or anything...
This one? http://www.southparkstudios.com/episodes/103772/
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
I believe I read in a few places that PirateBay wants to create an encrypted bittorent network for its members. That could make this all moot.
I thoght TPB tried to buy their own island, then sealand, but couldn't =\
and yeah, i heard about that encrypted bittorent network, it better happen =P
