  • The Internet is similar to the modern high sea: no specific jurisdiction, no one in charge.

    The copyright infringers are the modern pirates: taking advantage of the lack of authority in order to commit thefts, charging in and taking whatever they desire wherever, whenever, and from whomever suits their fancy, and then moving on to the next. Like those crazy pirates back in the day.

  • Aarrggh. Because it is the theft of commerce, laddie. In times of past, this was at sea, but now it can be in cyberspace too. Yarrr.
