At a press conference today the Congressional International Anti-Piracy Caucus, made up of more than 70 members of the Senate and House of Representatives, unveiled the “2009 International Piracy Watch List.” In an effort to combat international copyright piracy by calling attention to countries where piracy has reached alarming levels the Caucus announced they will closely monitor the serious problems of copyright piracy in the following five countries: China, Russia, Canada, Spain, and Mexico.

“These countries stand out because of the scope and depth of their piracy problems, which cost the US copyright industries and the millions of Americans who work in these companies billions of dollars and because piracy in these countries is largely the result of a lack of political will to confront the problem,” said the caucus in a press release.

The caucus hails the advent of digital technology and its promise of a “golden age” for entertainment, but laments that its been accompanied by an “explosion” in piracy and a “diminution” in copyright protection.

“Fostering strong intellectual property protection builds the economies of not only developed nations, like ours, but for any nation striving to achieve a vibrant and growing economy,” said Senator Hatch (R-UT).  “Conversely, counterfeiting and piracy cripple growth and stifle innovation.  Many do not understand that ideas, inventions, artistic works, and other commercially viable products created out of one’s own mental processes deserve the same protection under the law as any tangible product or piece of real estate.  Unfortunately, some believe that if they find it on the Internet then it must be free. We must stop this destructive mindset.”

That is SUCH a load of crap.  :lol: Anyone with half a brain cell knows our economies are stifled now because of these greedy fatcats not spending their money because of the poor economy. Which in turns leads to stifling the economy. AND everyone also knows the the money that the antipiracy groups take in have nothing to do with the actual performing artists. Almost all of that money goes into "fatcat" pockets. :suspious:
When you wake up each morning always try to remember tomorrow is never your option, it's God's. Love like you want to. Live like you aren't afraid. And ALWAYS try to remember that even if it seems personal it's never as important as something you may have forgotten to do today.
