Legal While the US is still pondering SOPA, we just got some absolutely fantastic news out of Europe. The European Court of Justice, the highest court in the European Union, has just ruled that P2P filters installed by ISPs violate the European Directive on electronic commerce as well as fundamental rights [full ruling]. This is a hugely important ruling that effectively protects all member states of the European Union from ever being subjected to ISP filtering and spying.

My view on this is very well... simple. You can't sell air.

To be more precise. If something can be copied to everyone for 0$ why would anyone buy it? I'm sorry artists, programmers et al. Your business model doesn't add up. Live with it, move along.
