Now, it seems the whole megaupload debacle has effectively scare people. War of terror indeed. It seems the strategy is the same no matter the battle field.

To think that all of this could be avoided if the companies were more interested in making their products known over making their CEOs/"artist" rich. It is absurd when an e-book is more expensive than the printed hard copy one, or when a movie DVD/blueray double its original-not so cheap- prize because it won a silly thing like an Oscar.
