Legal "This means that people can no longer get convicted for violating the copyright monopoly alone. The court just declared it illegal for any court in Europe to convict somebody for breaking the copyright monopoly law when sharing culture, only on the merits of breaking the law. A court that tries somebody for violating the copyright monopoly must now also show that a conviction is necessary to defend democracy itself in order to convict. This is a considerably higher bar to meet." Well, that's progress, I guess.

Neither can I infinite upload for $0. Power is expensive and so is internet. Wait, I could make infinite copies of mix-tapes for $0 when people brought there tapes back so I could replace the old copied stuff with new copied stuff.

For FTP ratios: I did and also know there are people asking for money in return. That's unrelated to this article which is about filesharing with no profits (legal) and not the black market (illegal). Learn to differ, its not the same.

Except you only have to upload it once ...

Yeah, and probably about an hour for each one, depending on how many recorders there were. And the recorded copy will never be as good as the original either. This is not the same thing, and you know it. Computers are like virtual replicators.
