The fish rots from.....
Flotsam, you are disingenuous to the nth degree.|
File-sharing programs are for...sharing files. If users decide to share out the latest movie or album, who is to blame? The software manufacturer or the user in question? If I kill a pedestrian with my nice new car, who is to blame, me or the car manufacturer?
Now, if I host a site to distribute pirate movies, am I more responsible than the manufacturer of file-sharing software?
Let's take it a stage further: if I run a market that subsidises itself predominantly through the sale of pirate CDs and DVDs, do I contribute more to copyright piracy than the manufacturers of file-sharing software?
I realise, of course, that asking you these questions is a complete waste of time, as you more than likely won't answer them, but instead engage in an ad hominem attack (''lying westerner", etc). But, ever the optimist, I'll give it a shot.
You can answer my previous questions whenever you’re ready, BTW.
Yes, I stand by my assertion that there are numerous pirate sites evident in China, and no, I'm not going to name them. I'm sure you know the URLs. If I DID post the URL, the mod would (rightly) censor the post, and if (s)he didn't, you would accuse me, a foreigner, of assisting in copyright piracy.
"I could just as easily say there are American government organisations where they promote paedophilia with babies and then eat them."
If it makes you happy to post such, go for it. It would be no worse than most of the other nonsense you offer by way of "argument".
