    This is definitely a pretty major milestone. It seems this Pirate Bay guilty verdict has turned online piracy from something young adults do in their spare time into a actual legal force on the European Parliament. It won't be much, obviously, but having that kind of support definitely can't hurt the cause. This is pretty awesome, and I hope they only grow in support as we move forward.

    Yeah, there's some things out there which are better to try before you buy. I think someone needs to stand up for people's rights to freedoms on the net. There are many reasons for piracy which I think are valid. You have to also keep in mind that they didn't pirate anything themselves, the users of their site did. It's kind of like arresting a parent for their children shoplifting.
