Legal As regular readers on OSNews will know, I'm quite opposed to the concept of post-sale restrictions, but also the insane countermeasures undertaken by the film and music industry against individuals who illegally download content. The reason I'm so opposed to these things is not because I approve of the act of illegal downloading - no, it's all about the slippery slope effect.

If someone commits a crime and someone else helps make that possible, then that second person, whether they took part in the actual criminal action or not, can be blamed as well.

Don't be foolish can a knife manufacturer be blamed for murders his knife is used for? The knife and thus the manufacturer clearly helped by providing the knife for a reasonable price. Can a bank teller who packs money for banks robbers at gun point be blamed they helped pack money? Your stament is far to general to be of use.
