I dunno if anyone's brought it up, but apparently there's a new treaty being discussed at the G8 in relation to this, to quote the poster:

Quote:
Just found out about this new proposed 'law'. Don't know if anyone has heard of it yet, it's fairly new. If passed, this law would enable serious breaches of privacy, allowing border patrols/Customs officials to confiscate and destroy items they suspect of holding copyright-infringing material, and also allowing rights holders to bypass the justice system and "expeditiously obtain information identifying the alleged infringer" of their IP rights from ISPs themselves.

While we're off speculating about what is or isn't legal or moral or stealing, they're changing the rules on us.

This is why I do not have any issues with pirates or any other such downloaders. If anyone wants to get into an argument about what is morally acceptable, they need to start looking at the tactics of these rule enforcers. You can't completely alienate another individuals human rights claiming personal ownership rights, or the right to distribute your medium in your defined means.
