Don't get me wrong I get a lot of stuff from TPB which I wouldn't even dream of buying but I would never host a site like that. Heck I'm terrified of downloading just normal stuff cause not too long ago I got a letter of copyright infringement from my ISP so I had to stop.
Anyway I hope they can get back TPB online and live a peaceful life but they're always gonna be targets to the copyright police.
I'm more pro-netocracy
; but I'll withhold my full opinion on that for now. Just fodder for thought before I go: regurgitating Youtube material that is copyrighted is just as much a violation - and that is rampant on the boards; here and everywhere. Besides, most won't come and say it out loud for fear, but I can't think of anyone in my near vicinity who hasn't pirated when s/he needed to.
“What a fate: to be condemned to work for a firm where the slightest negligence at once gave rise to the gravest suspicion! Were all the employees nothing but a bunch of scoundrels, was there not among them one single loyal devoted man who, had he wasted only an hour or so of the firm's time in the morning, was so tormented by conscience as to be driven out of his mind and actually incapable of leaving his bed?”
