Another seeder was arrested for uploading. I'm so ashamed to be living in a place so monopolized by heartless capitalists that not one political party, politician or academic has been willing to stand up for us. Piracy has given us unprecedented computer literacy, made possible many cult/small fandoms, and given people access to movies or shows which would've been censored or died of obscurity. And frankly, the movies or shows which people wouldn't like to pay for after downloading wouldn't have attracted a paying audience in the first place. For one thing, I've bought more DVDs after I've got into the habit of downloading simply because I know of and have tasted more shows via this means.
