    For all the people moaning about how ridiculous it is, it's clearly just a symbolic move against them aimed at bankrupting them. No-one seriously expects to get $75 trillion from anyone.

    Saying that, although it's primary use was to facilitate copyright infringement, it is just a program that can be used that way. I'm sure DVD drives have been used billions of times to illegally rip DVDs, should all the manufacturer's be held responsible for that?

    Wow these morons are worse than some idiotic students... they will never learn that if people couldnt use the p2p to download they would of just gone without or got it by another method. It is so stupid of them to think that the downloads would actually equal the sales.
    They cant lose what they never had
