Yay, I can post again. Thanks for adding the LOGIN button, guys.
Okay, back to business. This is retarded!! You get punished more harshly for a virtual theft than a physical one? C'mon, is there a room is a sub-basement somewhere with a bunch of nimwits sitting around a table just coming up with these ideas? Like a think tank, but only the opposite? It scares me that with the world still teetering on the edge of economic collapse, especially in Europe, nimwit government officials can find the time to come up with more ways to suck up to the MPAA/RIAA.
All it takes is one 85 year old grandmother to get handed a 10 year prison sentence for illegally downloading "Appetite for Destruction" and people will crowd the streets in protest.
