Yup...and now they're poised to take their bullshit global with that
super-secret ACTA treaty.  I wrote my senator about it and got back a
load of crap about how they won't let it interfere with individual
rights....blah...blah...He and that industry whose payroll he's on can
all go straight to hell.  Here's the game plan:

1) Create more draconian anti-consumer (if not unconstitutional) laws
that treat everyone as criminals under the guise of protecting
2) Wait for them to have no affect on illegal downloading (which they
of course won't)
3) Go to step one.
