    Just wait til they chip us all with RFID and the Thought Police round up anyone who violates Intellectual Property rights, and throw them in Concentration FEMA camps where they will never be heard from again!

    Yeah, no kidding. What ever happened to an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth? “Oh you stole a song? You now owe us your soul.”

    The war on filesharing is like the war on drugs: fucked. And like everything else here (America) taken to the Nth beyond reason degree.In fairness the majority of fans really are little bitches. If you’re gonna rip something at least man up enough to admit it. Instead these little self-entitled bitches use every bogus justification that comes to mind vs facing honesty of it.

    You see thats what the company’s tell you to not download their products.. The truth is that about 80% are virus free torrents.. and if you know what you download you wont even find any viruses.. like i haven’t seen 1 single virus in a torrent file that i’ve downloaded this year and if you’re so “virus phobic” just scan the torrent that you downloaded… basically in most cases its more risky Googling for porn :P
