File sharing helping bring down oppresive regime?

North Korea's dictatorship has blocked its people from learning about the outside world for more than 60 years. But the wall of propaganda has begun to crack as North Koreans use real-life social networks to illegally share South Korean TV dramas and pop music on everything from DVDs to USB sticks.

"I was told when I was young that South Koreans are very poor, but the South Korean dramas proved that just isn't the case," according to a 31-year-old male defector.

The internet:  The great equalizer and cure for the disease of lack of information.  It's good to see some cracks developing there.  I might have to dump in my other HD and dedicate it to YaCy or some such.  I would find it amusing.
