Legal "If you download potentially copyrighted software, videos or music, your Internet service provider has been watching, and they're coming for you. Specifically, they're coming for you on Thursday, July 12. That's the date when the nation's largest ISPs will all voluntarily implement a new anti-piracy plan that will engage network operators in the largest digital spying scheme in history, and see some users' bandwidth completely cut off until they sign an agreement saying they will not download copyrighted materials." One day, years from now, historians are going to debate whether this was the point of no return.

If you download potentially copyrighted software

I've downloaded really copyrighted software. And I plan to keep doing it :-). I've even published copyrighted software of my own and I like that people copy it. That's why licenses like GPL exist. :-)
