I am not even going to bother reading all these pages of replies, but on the topic at hand I agree with this post here completely.


It doesn't bother you at all that as an American Citizen that if you sell a property second hand that was manufactured outside of America WITHOUT seeking permission from the copyright holder, then in the eyes of the government you will have committed a felony and be prosecuted as such?


No, it does not bother me because I do not buy or sell secondhand.

This has nothing to do with party affiliation.

Remember that it was a Democrat president who gleefully passed the DMCA. A Republican president who signed off on the patriot act. And of course a Democrat president who's been in office this last half decade or so, using drones to blast at people.

The creeping loss of individual economic rights knows no political party, no orientation of left or right. This is why vigilance is needed no matter who is in the White House.
