Faps_in_the_kitchen: Theaetetus: StrikitRich: fudgefactor7: This is retarded, you can't substantially violate a copyright in 160 characters. Fair use, motherfarkers.

I agree. What are they pulling own, music lyrics or movie quotes? Hotlinks?

URLs of pirate torrent sites, or to nude pictures of Kat Dennings. (sfw)

I did not know these existed.

/Off to GIS, then to my bunk the kitchen.

Copyrights should only extend to content which is not offered in digital format. The minute you put something online or in digital form on a cd or dvd you've made it so easy to pirate that you are no better than a bank which stores its cash on the street corner, expecting all of society to help you protect it from theft.

If you are a musician and you only offer live performances and vinyl records then yes I think the copyright police should help you stop the thieves.

But a person who clicked a single link shouldnt be prosecuted, its the digital equivalent of getting caught up in the hysteria of a public event......as long as your not one of the anarchists in the front rank throwing rocks at the cops.......
