The problem is, the record labels aren't losing out as much as the bands. Think, a band has a label to promote their stuff, but the labels don't promote it (because of piracy), as a result ticket sales drop (this is where the bands make most of their money)

Ah, I forgot, if they pass such a law, EU will copy it
What do I care what EU does ? I live in Romania. I forgot again, the EU constitution has passed without anybody asking me anything, so I must obey my new masters
The entire world is already ruled by a few people, NWO is here

You don't have to care what the U.S. does, I was speaking as an American for Americans, did I mention Pai Mei somewhere in my post? Besides what I said goes for any capatalist country where corporations are doing such things.
technically they didn't provide the torrents but aren't they still providing a way to a torrent?
