    You might not be able to VERY soon mate.



    Its bullshit. "counterfeight" is defined as an "imitation" of the original. You share a file online its an EXACT copy of the original. Therefor not counterfeight.

    Harry3 get your ass in here and sort this out!

    Everyday i come on here and there's another thread relating to this censorship of the internetz. What are we doing to fight back ?

    Harry3 we need plans, we need plans now!

    This is serious !

    If you don't come up with a master plan on how we are to over throw this oppression, then I am going to have to question your leadership.

    hopefully it wont make it thru the Europian Parliment, we'll have to see what happens...i'm not convinced it will become law, but we still need to make noise about it to make sure it doesnt

    It'll go through without a hitch if no one puts up a fight.

    Absolutely amazes me how this has less publicity than sopa.

    i get the feeling that was the idea tbh mate, this all went on in the background whilst sopa and pipa stole the limelight, no one knows about acta so no one can speak up lol! i didnt know about it until like a week ago.

    Yeah man, thats exactly right. SOPA and PIPA were used as decoys, and to get people to think "yawnnn, another acronym, the other didnt go through, so this one wont too".

    Cant blame em for trying to stop people stealing their shit. Its like thieves complaining you using a bike lock lol.

    But tbh, if it was damaging them SO much, theyd be out of business. They wouldnt be around to think up these ridiculous plans. They got plenty of money. Which just goes to show theyre just being greedy =P lol.

    well of course, that's what this all boils down too, it's got fuck all to do with what's morally right, it's got to do with giving corporations as much power and money as possible, and keeping the public quiet.

    Free speech?! Loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool!

    Sure is a load of bollox being spouted in defense of nicking stuff in here. I can remember an age before it was morally (interesting word that armed you should read up about it a bit more first) acceptable to do the equivalent of walking into HMV and stuffing your pockets full of albums...

    However and I must stress however, I am a tad hypocritical when it comes to downloading copyrighted material. I'm definitely gonna miss all the obscure music that I would never have heard without this free for all soooo...

    Can I suggest we break off into teams and start downloading decades seperately? That way we can pool stuff together once those nasty politicians stop the stealing problem. I know Maloney has the 20's and 30's depression era sewn up. I'd quite like to fill my boots with 80's white people music having spent so long despising it.

    Anyone else care to join me while we still can?

    no, i'm pretty sure i've got the right idea...


    morally -
    1. In relation to standards of good and bad character or conduct.
    2. In a way that conforms to standards of good behavior.
