Internet & Networking It's official now. The signs had been there for a while now. While the west bangs on about the importance of freedom and democracy, they don't actually want anyone to have too much of it. The US, France, and the UK have jointly pretty much declared war on freedom on the web.

I bet if you really think about there are other things too. It's quite hard not without crippling yourself.

Nope. Old games that are no longer being produced is literally the only thing I download that is questionable as far as copyright violation. All of my music, software, and movies are legal.

There was a time that I did download music illegally. I admit that. But that was before the days of legal online music services where I could buy individual songs instead of entire albums. Now that iTunes and various other online stores allow me to do that, I don't have any illegal music anymore. All of it is legally purchased.

In the cases where I can't afford to buy a legal copy of some piece of software. I just use an open source alternative instead. GIMP instead of Photoshop. OpenOffice instead of MS Office, etc.
