    So for those Kool-Aid drinkers... How much bootlegged stuff do you have on your devices? Well Obama wants to make you a criminal.

    The link is no longer available.

    You are aware, aren't you, that the president doesn't "pass" anything?

    I just watched it. It's about an international copyright treaty.

    You do realize there are many reasons why this law is a bad idea .. right?

    Most people don't just surf the web on their computers, a ton of private info is now stored on them.

    Also ... seriously? Who gives a fuck if they copy a movie or two ... or a song. I have CDs of all the music I copied onto my computer, technically it's illegal even though I bought the CDs and just use the MP3s for convenience in my player. But they would still try to prosecute me and under this law they'd have the ability to try.
