A mug’s game

After a court ruling in Australia file sharing network/platform Kazaa’s been ordered to add filter to their services. Certain buzzwords or certain might not be the right word since the list of buzzword contains 3,000 items will now be filtered out when using their search engine. The courts and the rights industry alike believe that making searching on the Kazaa network all but impossible will stop or at least make a dent in the flows of sharing. The question we all are asking ourselves is - who are the biggest fools? The devious bastards who try to equate individual words with copyrighted material (and de facto claiming ownership of the words themselves) or the mugs still using Kazaa? It’s a close call but I would have to go with option number two. The first ones are at least trying to do something the other ones are just sitting there. Ah, for fuck’s sake, just change file sharing program!

Sigh, sigh, sigh! Stupidity rules, ok?
