What's greedy, Tom? Pirates that copy a movie or the corporations that copyright the movie for 100+ years? When should something become public domain? The corporations that want to make it so that Libraries are illegal and so that the average Joe can not look up something on google or wikipedia without paying a fee need to go. They are the true greed and are counter to human evolution and creativity. They want a world where only the rich can be educated and can experience art. The poor won't even get to listen to the radio if the corporations have their way. Until they fix this broken system, pirate everything!

Boycotting Russian-made entertainment would be easy, if it weren't for the side-splitting RT forum.
