Subject: Let's Define Piracy

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

One thing conspicuously missing from the SOPA/PIPA debate was just what constitutes piracy. And we need to have a serious conversation about defining piracy because piracy is definitely real, but it's not what big media companies and the MPAA's Chris Dodd would have you believe.
