legal action against megaupload does not kill free speech …

… it only sanctions behaviour, which is bad karma anyway. AFAIK megaupload was a subscription site charging money for access to pirated intellectual property. Charging money for pirated content is BAD-BAD-BAD since the 1980ies when trading software started in schools!

Remember: „Information should be free“, the decision to pirate or not to pirate is yours – I will leave that to your discretion. Content owners will differ.

BUT EARNING MONEY WITH PIRATED INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY IS FRAUD!

… and fraud is a crime in RL anyway and should also be punished in cyberspace
– on the customers side by not joining subscription pirate sites – use offres gratuites
– and I personally support all content owners taking legal action against sites earning money with pirated content.

Your opinion might differ, but this had to be said, sorry!
