    I have my wifi open. Does this mean I am liable if my neighbors on either side use it to share porn?

    There is a legal argument right now that porn is not subject to copyright, and it is actually being used in court. I expect it will eventually reach the Supreme Court, and I would not be surprised if it holds up.

    This brings to question...why on earth would anyone pay for porn?
    20 years ago...yeah...today??
    I know this will be taken with a grain of salt...but honestly I don't view much porn at all. I read way too much to waste time looking at porn flicks. Especially with today's porn which is either up someone's ass (which I absolutely don't get) or it is a 5ft nothing skinny teen-look-a-like which creeps me out wondering how many sick f*cks are there out there who want to look at some chick who looks like their daughter or niece!!??

    --Anyway...who would pay for porn when it is free everywhere?
