...because after all, Napster did so well after it went legit.

The whole thing is just dumb. While the major media companies are playing whack-a-mole and got this one, five more similar sites will spring up elsewhere to handle the PB traffic that's looking for a new site to download from.

If the major gaming companies really want to put a dent in online piracy, the way to do it is by making their games more affordable in a recession economy, not by going after a site or two or trying to sue middle-class working moms for millions they'll never see. All that does is inspire an even more staunch "us vs them" mentality among those who pirating, and publicly cast efforts to stop online piracy as laughable.

I think the whole thing is a bit bizarre.  Who in their right mind would want to buy TPB and be the target of the misc lawsuits?

Hopefully we'll still be able to get our Linux distros from here.

I need my daily dose of linux. However, what will happen when it comes to them paying the copyright owners? Do we need a subscription? AWESOME! Our payment information on a site that actually has been prosecuted.

I don't like Microsoft, I associate with it.
