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 right will love this as the vast majority of "pirates" are young people in the 30 and under bracket whom also mostly vote progressively, this will allow them to remove young people from the voter roles for life via their 5000 a time, only evidence is an IP address John Doe attacks.
