    Hi,

    Before adding my first post I want to say that congratulations for this great forum.

    Last week I came across a survey and according to that 80% of Britain, France, Germany and U.S people admit to downloading video illegally from the net. What do you think about this issue? I mean who will win governments or piracy? As you know, torrent site piratebay is a political part in Sweden and already won a seat in European Parliament Elections.

    Thanks and yes if something is available for free people would not be tempted to buy it and normally we do not keep them long and after seeing it we remove them.

    I read an article where A woman in the US was fined $1.9mn for downloading 24 songs illegally. If she would have done it legally, it would have cost her on 99cents per song. Now she is fighting in the court for it:). Do you think this a beginning of things to come for illegal downloading...?

    I think, it would be an extremely difficult job to punish illegal downloading mainly because it has spread beyond national territorial limits.
