Legal Every now and then you come across these news items that make just too much sense to be true. Earlier this year, the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry threatened Norway's largest ISP, Telenor: block access to The Pirate Bay within 14 days, or face legal action. Telenor refused to comply - so it went to court. In what can only be seen as a major victory, the judge sided with Telenor.

Finite amount of common sense

There must only be a finite amount of common sense on Earth. When you see an abundance of it in some areas, as in this case, it seems to leave a vacuum in others -- like in the US, where the Obama Administration is not-so-secretly-anymore-thanks-to-the-Internet trying to turn the RIAA's and MPAA's agendas into international treaty (the aforementioned ACTA).

I truly hope the rest of the world gives Mr. O the finger on this one.
