I don't pretend to have all the answers here, but it does bother me that people think that stealing IP isn`t stealing. Claiming that the music and movies industries are operating with an archaic business model might be correct but doesn`t give license to nick their stuff either.

Clockwork208 nailed it. I say phuck the RIAA and the MPAA. They missed their chance to co-opt Napster and brought this all on themselves. When the market changes, you either change with it or you go out of business. Free market capitalism my arse. This country doesn't know a thing about unfettered markets - too much collusion and corruption.

SOPA was a joke anyway. Since when is it the job of the federal government or criminal courts to chase copyright infringers?

Yeah. I think they should cap copyright at around 60 to 80 years, max, since that's around the average person`s lifetime. Anything more than that and you`re making the law more for corporations than for individuals. 120 years is just crazy.
