You Will Never Kill Piracy, and Piracy Will Never Kill You

Now that the SOPA and PIPA fights have died down, and Hollywood prepares their next salvo against internet freedom with ACTA and PCIP, it’s worth pausing to consider how the war on piracy could actually be won.

It can’t, is the short answer, and one these companies do not want to hear as they put their fingers in their ears and start yelling. As technology continues to evolve, the battle between pirates and copyright holders is going to escalate, and pirates are always, always going to be one step ahead.

But what’s clear is that legislation is not the answer. Piracy is already illegal in the US, and most places around the world, yet it persists underground, but more often in plain sight. Short of passing a law that allows the actual blacklisting of websites like China and Iran, there is no legislative solution.  That’s what SOPA and PIPA were attempting to do, but it so obviously trampled on the First Amendment, it was laughed out of existence as the entire internet protested it. The only other thing you could get the internet to agree on was if they tried to institute a ban on cat pictures.

Yeah, that's pretty much true.  It's kind of a cross between an angry 3rd old ginger with freckles throwing a tantrum in the corner of your living room and a group of  psychologists trying to convince you that the Pepsi that you just drank came from a red can and was actually good for you...

I think the intertubes kiddies are still saying "Fail", as though it has some meaning.  Trite.  We need a new catch phrase to quickly sum up the massive amount of gaslighting that some of these folks spew.  Two words would be best else it turn into a modified "Fail" and end up in a "blog".  ^.O
