This is a FABULOUS article, written by Brad Templeton -- someone who knows what he talking about -- and addresses a LOT of excuses the piraters/shop-lifters try to claim as defense for the wrong things they're doing.
Of particular interest to piraters will be:
~ 2) "If I don't charge for it, it's not a violation."
~ 4) "My posting was just fair use!"
~ 7) "They can't get me, defendants in court have powerful rights!"
~ 8) "Oh, so copyright violation isn't a crime or anything?"
~ 9) "It doesn't hurt anybody -- in fact it's free advertising."
I love that he's totally saying all the same stuff WE'VE been saying but that people try to ignore.
Rush on over and read the artice, it's awesome: click here.
