Post Hold onto your loved ones: copyright is coming...
Its one thing when people who choose to consume media they didn't pay for get punished by the content controllers - the RIAA and MPAA etc. Its another when the entire world, including creative endeavors made possible by the internet also suffer. Like people's families being disconnected from the internet if one member pirates media without trial or due course of law. Or when whole chunks of interactive and far-reaching web get pummeled because these nitwits think they're being robbed. I personally choose to consume as little corporate media as possible, but they are going beyond the pale to interfere in my life (don't get me started on ISPs). Take for instance the future of copyright fascism, brought to you by governments worldwide:

Welcome to the corporate world people. I'd say we screwed the pooch. Quite honestly, I'm very disappointed that this is the best human nature can do.
