As everyone should know, I'm a big supporter of intellectual property. It's important to understand the need for protecting this. It's easy to come up with very weak arguments to justify the downloading (infringing) of someone else's hard work, but they're just an excuse for your own benefit (at the expensive of someone else).
I feel like there is a new battle every week that the "anti-copyright" people are amassing and fighting, yet we don't seem to have the masses defending the intangible hard work of others. And that's what I'm trying to do here.
