    In the end, everyone subject to laws--even the laws with which they don't agree.

    I read before of there jail time (2 1/2 yrs for the one and downhill for the rest), I see no mention of fines though. Has anybody seen anything on that?

    It's not theft, it's copyright infringement. Big difference. It's just the record companies who want people to believe it's theft.

    Of course, it can be discussed if it's theft-ish if people lose money because of it, the it isn't theft. Theft is theft, this isn't.

    Yea, why record companies can't take people to jail for downloading music. Its a civil matter.
