Can't wait the day when it's illegal to eat and drink with something 
else than platinum or diamond-cut dishes, although we pay for WHAT we're 
eating with them. It would be "bypassing the profit of the 
platinum-and-diamond-cut dishes monopolists".

Just forget about things like Live 8, feed the poor lawyers and bosses...

I agree with anyone stating that pay-TV shouldn't be stolen by not 
paying the *subscription*, or sharing music or movies originating from 
original CDs or DVDs is illegal, but I hate what industry and politics 
is doing to us (look at copy protected CDs, DVDs, HDCP, future HDTV on 
home-brewed receivers like VDR etc.). But maybe we deserve no different, 
standing tall has been long forgotten as we continue to buy their 
crippled CDs, DVDs, so-called "HD-ready" ridiculous TV Sets which make 
us "upgrade" everything even if it's still working well. They even 
managed to make us believe we feel good if we religiously respect such 
laws they actually just punch our teeth with (like declaring illegal to 
use something we payed for, if we're not using their expensive tools, 
it's fancy called "circumvention of a protection system", regardless of 
the use).
The whole thing stinks. They shouldn't punish the actual bypassing of 
copy or content protection systems, but the use of the bypassing, I 
mean, if you bypass the protection system of material you payed for only 
for watching and NOT giving it away to others not even in a non-profit 
way, then what can be illegal in that?

Sorry, I don't like mondays @work...
