That's because the Global Elite didn't have shares in Limewire.

typical ..

the governments of this world want all the same block and control the entire information and sharing of free software.

pirate bay will be next I doubt the founders win the case in court.

they can not let people speak and share freely.

seems to me that they are afraid that we know too much or realize that we dont need money to share things.

and of course to try to stop this trade they attempt to fine or suspend these services really free to get out outside the control of ordinary people

the weapon they use is called "copyright violation".

edit: By the way welcome to ATS


edit on 2011 by BenoV because: Welcome

I learned to share as a child. Maybe some others didn't and thus became qualified to be a part of TPTB.
