When you are pro-war even the abortion doctors call you "baby-killer."

They don't get it

In a digital flap about a position the California attorney general is about to take against P2P users, a Grokster spokesperson named Hal Bringman said: "More than 60 million P2P users, many of whom are voters, will not tolerate this kind of behavior."

Uhm, so the people breaking the law don't like it when they are about to be held accountable? And the EFF is pushing the line that ignorance of the law is a defense: "The principle has no limit -- you can use Internet Explorer to violate the law or unintentionally access pornography, so does he want to suggest that Microsoft is also breaking the law? Why stop at the Internet -- should Ford be held liable for failing to warn drivers that exceeding the speed limit will expose them to citations?"

Okay, I will try that the next time I get pulled over for speeding: "Gee officer, GMC did not warn me that driving a particular speed would violate the law so you should just let me go on about my business."

The law only applies to the law-enforcers, unless enforcement of said laws infringes on your right to exchange copies of copyrighted material that you don't own such as music, movies, TV shows, commercials, radio broadcasts and the descriptions and accounts of any baseball game without the prior written permission of the Major League Baseball organization.

Got it, thanks!
