I think if the *MPAA* turn up, we have the right to attack them with
samurai death pizza crusts boomerangs.  This isn't the USA.

I don't remember opening DVDs as such being wrong, or if it is, that is
neither the MPAA's problem.  Breaking CSS nonencryption is.

As for the FTA, my sentiment is some things were just meant to be
broken.  In this case there's a few heads lolloing around that are
likely candidates.  If it does mean it's a most heinious crime for
someone who's heard this talk to continue living after the FTA is passed
(Liberals in the lower House, Liberals in the Senate.  Like that's not
gonna happen), then I suppose that means the only thing really stopping
us from going on vigilante against FTA, MPAA, RIAA, CIA, and other TLAs
and FLEAs is our sense of moral high ground, as we can't really get in
any more trouble, can we?

Suicidal-death-squadron lieutenant (that's *lef*tenant, luv) fudje out.
