sounds like darchknight2008 has some moral issues of his own taking in others OPINIONS and slandering them looks like to be one of your major hotspots. This whole topic is opinion based.
But anyways, arguing this topic is like trying to argue about politics, religion, and abortion (which are the 3 top things you NEVER argue about, as they have no resolution). Every person has there own opinions. This is exactly how laws come into effect, by opinions. The opinion (or bill) works its way up the chain by finally getting ratified into a law. BUT as has happened before, laws do get changed and ammended. (for those of you that are older im sure you remember schoolhouse rock and "The Bill" episode
Simply stating that a law is right doesnt make it right, its just a majority summation of what your countries/government decided on. Also what alot of governments dont do is enforce the current laws they already have. Instead they come up with new ones to try and cover up the loopholes in the current system.
Considering that the US government is flawed all to hell, theres no real law that can stay in effect without finding a loophole in the system (i.e. finding a non-educated judge in the topic, current rulings that have already been upheld etc). When a guy falls through a sky light of the house he was trying to rob, sues the owner of the house, and WINS the judgement, that right there tells you that there are major flaws in our so called "Court System".
As for the law, its going to be more time wasted than what they get out of it. Theyll just have to write several other laws that companies have to abide to, companies will then have to adhere to certain rules and data retention policies, and personal privacy is then washed out the door for good.
And also, I for one download games via bittorrent, I try them out. If I like them, I buy them, same goes for music. If I dont, I deleteit, does this make me a thief, again, its all from a personal, opiniated perspective
And as for the missing music, CD getting scratched post:
If I already paid for the game, I WILL download another copy from bittorrent or some other ways of getting it. What you buy a is a personal license to hold said property/Intellectual Property, not that you can only own 1 physical disk.
