quote: You're still building on the logical fallacy that people are going to pirate preferentially. Maybe people DON'T pirate on mass, maybe people prefer to purchase goods with money. Maybe that would explain the huge box office incomes and absurd profits the record labels make which fund their lawsuit campaigns? What if there ISN'T a piracy problem? What if it's so small and marginal that it's being inflated simply to drive legislation like this to allow companies to fleece even more money from the common, innocent consumer?
