Multimedia, AV ABC.net.au has published an article titled "The Case for Piracy". The writer shows how copyright has been hijacked by corporations and that publishers are their own worst enemies. "One of the main reasons we all have anti-piracy slogans embedded in our brains is because the music industry chose to try and protect its existing market and revenue streams at all costs and marginalise and vilify those who didn't want to conform to the harsh new rules being set."

The solution to bad law isn't to violate it, the solution is to try to get the law changed.



Actually, quite the contrary has been true through history. Just look at civil rights in this country, prohibition, even our own revolution. Change has often begun with one group demanding change by refusing to obey the "law". After all, if everyone obeyed the law, there would be little point in changing it.
