<i>Of course, the significant point is that the entertainment industry *is* losing a lot of money due to piracy of their copyrighted works. If they are inflating the numbers... well... that's not the core of the issue, is it.
We get just as upset when *our* copyright user licenses are violated. There *is* an injustice here which needs to be corrected.</i>
Actually, yes, they're loosing *some* money; but no fucking loss of money is EVER going to justify a restriction of civil liberties. We may be infuriated if somebody illegally copies our works, BUT we're not going to push a draconian big-brother state because of that.
There's a difference of "being mad at someone as civilian person" and "changing the laws to punish someone" (and besides, it's not even "to punish someone for a perceived injustice", it's "to grant me a rent").
