Gah, I hate these laws. Thanks to metallica... :P

Yeah, Its ridiculous how dumb charges like these are equivalent to manslaughter and such
Here in canada they wanted to pass a bill that would make distrubution of marijuana equal to manslaughter. WTF. As far as torrents go I have no idea about laws, but i do use them religiously. I can get what I want withouts commercials, any movie im curious about, or a game

My biggest complaint about torrents is what game companies do because of illegal game copies. EA is the worst. All this garbage they make you install on your system so they can make sure it is a legal copy. How long until we're sending screenshots of our desktop to them for verification just so we can play a game? Plus, it only works for a few days until it's cracked.

I'd actually download some games just because the copyright stuff is so invasive.

yeah, I bought Fallout 3 and it didnt work for a week because they it was believed to be an illegal copy.

Plus, they limit your installs. So if I want to replay it at a later time, but have already done 3 installs (which is likely because I have a desktop and a laptop and the first install isn't always successful) you're boned. They make you buy another license. Complete rubbish.
