I think its time the whole world cracks down on Obama and his whole crew of jolly little pirates!

Obama is the finest President the rotten capitalist U.S.-System allows.

I guess if you cant run a war in the Middle East, fix an oil spill, fund NASA, fix the economy, create employment or get a handle on the Iran nuke program you might as well secure a job in Hollywood. It ain’t like Obama is gonna be in Washington after the next election. He might as well try to score a deal like ex-congressman Glickman got.

And domain names cost … $200?
Oh woe is me!!!

I can imagine these domains are feeling the pain … they’ll have to perform a word search on their website & replace a few links … and change their logos…

“U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said copyright infringement leads to lost U.S. jobs.” ---- Really? Is that the latest tactic?
Next thing they’ll be saying is that it’s the leading cause of oil spills. Sorry, but the cause of lost jobs is outsourcing and the shallow economy. Both of those were brought on by corporate greed, not this. (Not that I care that a few movie sites were shut down – I rent DVDs. But I hate propaganda.)
