Pirate Bay sold out

So it’s going to attempt to license content under the new ownership.  Knowing the absurd heights that the demands of the RIAA & MPAA can reach, I think I know where this goes: GGF offers semi-reasonable model, only to be forced to adopt an absolutely stupid one, and people leave the site in droves until it becomes an anarchonism as a result.

Going back even to IRC days, there’s been a consistent lesson about content distribution behind every p2p method.  Until the opposition learns that lesson, they’re just playing whack-a-mole, their responses destined to be looked at with the same incredulity past generations looked at “recording radio?  Sharing tapes?  THIEF!!!”.
