Have you noticed how much damage torrents are doing to the internet? People dont buy any software any more, they just get the torrent. I know a guy who has gigs of music for free, MS Word 2008 for free, the full Adobe CS3 set for free, tons of PC games (Civ4, Crysis, GoW, ect.) an anti-virus, the list goes on for ever... and it's all registered with a cracked serial too.
Torrents need to be stopped somehow, software developers and musicians are being screwed every day... it's just not right (or legal). How much money has been stolen? WAY too much.
