P2P and Bonnie & Clyde
« on: April 20, 2009, 04:27:18 pm »

This is just an extract from a much longer article. I recommend that you go to the link above and read the full article.

I spend a lot of my time explaining to perfectly reasonable and intelligent people that P2P isn’t illegal, but every time, they respond with the stock standard answer – ‘But I read in the New York Times’  (and/or) saw it on an advertisement on Foxtel, or somewhere) ”that P2P was illegal. So I thought I’d blog about P2P so I can in the future merely refer people to this article and not have to explain it anymore.

Bonnie and Clyde got to be Public Enemy Number One.

Politicians and the folks from the mainstream press would have you believe P2P is illegal. It isn’t. When  Bonnie and Clyde were finally apprehended, did the law make a big announcement about the 1932 Pierce-Arrow they were driving ? Nope. It had nothing to do with their escapades. Yep, it was fast. Yep, it had four wheels and a motor. Yep, it was used as the getaway car in over 50 bank heists. But the police failed to arrest Herbert Dawley (the car’s designer) as an accessory, even though his car facilitated bank robbery get-aways.

A point that seems to be lost on a lot of people, including certain Swedish judges.
