This is outrageous.Price of one music is ~$1 (which is still overpriced), so it would be a crime worth ~$3, in many countries its "so low value" that it doesnt even considered as a theft.Now imagine that someone steals my bike, and i go to the police, and asking back my Bugatti Veyron? (sounds stupid, Not?!)
It's time for the coffin makers of the world to expand their businesses and start making crosses for all the scum of the world.
The sad truth seems to be that the only countries where people will be free to go about their everyday lives will be the so called "undemocratic" countries who don't care what its residents do as long as they don't get involved in politics and don't criticise the government. Well, guess what, it is perfectly fine by me. I don't care which party is in power and which fraction some president or prime minister belongs to but I do care about my privacy and freedom in the virtual world.
Bc Govt's are stupid and owned by Corporations like Sony
Pshaa, a ridiculous sum for three song. The age of copyright is over, ACTA is useless, the war on piracy will be just as futile as the war on drugs. You cannot arrest everyone who pirates, nor can you scare people into not pirating, you can't even take out all the networks and sites that facilitate piracy. No law can curb the will of the people, I can see that, why can't governments?
