Legal Despite doing what I think are some great things for the American people, the Obama administration has a dark side. Joe Biden and many others on staff come straight from the RIAA camp, and it shows. Today, the Obama administration disregarded every US law relating to theft and copyright by stating that piracy is "flat, unadulterated theft".

Grow up kids.

It is people like you that are ruining the arts and sciences. Copyright was put in place to promote the arts and sciences - not as a license to print money. By sucking on big content's popcicle, you are redefining copyright into a license to print money, which will hurt the promotion of arts and sciences more than any downloading will ever do. Just read and listen to anything by Lessig, and how the broken copyright system is holding back education and science. That is going to come back and bite Americans in the ass.

It is short-sighted and an insult to the clever men and women who came up with the concept.
