In a country that doesn’t even censor nudity (much), the copyright industry seems to have corrupted many a politican abroad… I think we’ve had this “discussion” in the USA courts… GOOGLE IS NOT THE INTERNET… neither is a single protocol in and of itself-- all of the data are packets.

I dunno, some UK drama shows are funny… I wouldn’t mind an episode of Shameless or Doctor Who involve the riots about the widening gap between the rich and poor. Who wouldn’t want to buy a Tardis for a $1
