How long will it be until the US military, police, and other regulatory agencies decide the constitution they took an oath to protect is being jeopardized
How will they react when the special forces and military sides with and recruits people into a civil military force to the extent there is an American spring and there becomes a real war on terror against the corporate and banking whores at the federal reserve for the treason that have done against people.

We don't need there permission to do what we want as long as it does not cause direct hardship to an individual or an individuals family.

Copyright is another word for greed.

No one should be able to make it so sharing music and movies is so protected they can give heavy fines and imprisonment that's just ridicules.

Well, to be fair, movies and games take a lot of time and money to produce, and I understand where those people are coming from. Though I do imagine that piracy would decrease if that stuff wasn't so expensive. If you'd take my country for example, Lithuania, the average cost of a video game is about 250 LTL which is about 70 euro (hehe, economy). This wouldn't bother me if the games were actually worth it. At least movies are inexpensive (strangely enough, a movie ticket can cost less than a pack of cigarettes.)

Honestly, this is how I feel about the whole thing. There are rapists, murderers, drug warlords, homeless, troubled youth and the like out in the world and even in our home country (America). Yet, look what we're sending all of our funds and forces to: Stopping Gay-Rights protests; stopping liberals from protesting corporate businesses (a.k.a. Occupy); poking our noses into other countries' business; and trying to stop online illegal activity. What the hell are we thinking? We can't help out anyone, INCLUDING THE BUSINESS INDUSTRY, if we can't help ourselves first! I am all for internet freedom, but maybe the governments should try to tackle us down after they solve the major problems first, like giving the homeless a safe place to pick themselves up in life, or helping the majorly troubled youth get a good start in life.

India/China and a few more (actually the countries which have for sure the highest percent of copy-right violations) didn't sign it.

The actual truth is the opposite of what they say, due to the internet development the music industry is so developed, most artists nowadays make more money than previous legends did before their age just because it's easier to purchase their songs. What these money hungry mongrels want is that extra 25c per song in their pocket because they're not settled with what they have -_-

This is my idea.... for the US players on CO, we pick a day, go to California(TQ's US base) and march around their place all day long... we will have picket signs, and we can yell stuff.... we can have a protest about TQ's lottery, and let our voices be heard about what they are doing with CO, and how every patch so far is just made for them gettting more money... (they also have a base in Shanghai, Japan, and China(their HQ).... if anyone is near there, they can go that day and protest...
