Try telling that to Cisco



How is that a valid defence? Try telling the MPAA/RIAA that your use of The Pirate Bay isn't stealing.


Without even getting into the "is personal piracy wrong" issue, it's pretty easy to draw a line between an individual downloading songs from pirate bay and a major corporation pirating IP wholesale and then making a business out of reselling the derivative products.


Without entering the entire debate, I was only intending to talk about the "Ask the plaintiff" style. Obviously the plaintiff is going to think something's wrong. That's what being the plaintiff is.


Sure, I can agree with that. Good point.


Fair enough
