If those idiots in the record industry actually think that the Taiwanese government is going crack down on piracy then I want some of what they are smoking. Piracy is the bread & butter of their economy.

You cannot force other countries to have a certain law. What laws another country makes is their own business. The only exception is terrorism which we can force other countries to have laws against.

Tell you what~ As you can see I am from Taiwan~ and I think what “Mr. Zib” said is not total truth. Taiwan earn $ not only base on Blank CD-R(You should say Philips and Sony swallow more than half of the profit!!) but also by the semiconductor related products, such as nVidia’s chips~~~. So if IFPI or Record industry do any stupid things in order to stop the piracy~~ Philips and Sony will be impacted firstly~~ :d
