You mean like icefilms? hahaha


YA BRO I'm sure the grand jury was swayed by Icefilms "oh they did like, 20 instances of legal file sharing so that offsets the 9,000,000 times they did it illegally"

Obviously the law does not need more power since it has the power to take down giants like megaupload already. SOPA and PIPA are just overkill.

Don't know much about this, but did anyone think the timing is rather suspect though?

Bills to stop piracy in congress, this going on to show the cost and the amount of illegal activities that go on over the web.

You're blaming the U.S. for this? The only people at fault is those who were caught, because they got caught.
