    Are these companies and governments morons? Piracy was beginning to fade away. Granted it would never disappear entirely, but it was starting to lost traction by large amounts. 


    These restrictions by Germany, China, Google and Youtube are only going to cause a large boom in piracy.

    I really hope Germany and China will revisit their standpoints on online content. Let it thrive as a new ecosystem and stop trying to treat it as a hundred year old system. It's so vastly different than TV and radio in a way that's never been seen before, community interaction. The internet is growing so much and so fast that it's hard to say where it will go, but as it stands right now, it should be left to thrive.

    Wait, I'm confused.


    Is Ashley saying she is a Pirate, or a Cowboy?

    That sucks a lot.  

    It will shut down great up incoming content creators before they even start.  

    I guess it is too much to ask for governments to ask to not fuck with the Internet and to actually learn about it.

    I hope my country doesn't follow suit.
