See what all you "too cheap to buy your music" crooks did? You've only given more leverage to crap like this. Way to go, geniuses!!
When one takes something that is not theirs and does not pay for it, that is known as stealing or theft. I hope everyone of you theives gets nailed to the wall.
Unfortunately, you're inability to do the right thing in the first place will most likely affect all the people not engaged in your shoddy practices, too. Thanks

When they stop ripping me off is when I stop ripping them off.
Nations including Canada, the US and various European states (including the UK, which sits on the G8) are secretly agreeing a new pan-global state police deal in which information held on iPods and other devices could be subject to investigation by customs officials tasked with a new role, as copyright police.
Q: Why are you not pursuing this agreement through the G8, WTO, WIPO or other formal structure ?
A: We feel that the approach of a free-standing agreement gives us the most flexibility to pursue this project among interested countries. We fully support the important work of the G8, WTO, and WIPO, all of which touch on IPR enforcement. The membership and priorities of those organizations simply are not the most conducive to this kind of path breaking project.

Two of the articles state that if this passes it could lead to strict regulations on internet providers, forcing them to hand over customer information without court orders. That's what this is about !

I'm curious how they will determine what exactly has been legally added and what is an infringement of a copy right.
How do they know if the Metallica (*finger*) songs on my ipod are ripped from cd or ripped from the net?
