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".

F'ing joke... and the joke is on us.

This whole matter is a completely imbecilic joke. And it's played on us.

Let's take a look at this. Who's really complaining? The publishers, editors, distributors, etc, represented by huge powerful wealthy entities like the RIAA and MPAA, etc, etc.

Why? They say they are losing money and that way they can't provide the contents to the target audiences.


How about restrictions on products delivered (or not!) to said audiences? DVD region restrictions, no availability of products on some regions even with demand present??

I already said it once and I will keep saying it. This is not about copyright infringement or theft. Those excuses are just a cover-up for the real agenda, which is absolute control of any distribution means, be it tangible or intangible.

They want to control how the audiences get the products they want us to have!

So, all this debate about theft or not? Smokescreen.

Edit: spelling.
