    No peer to peer sharing, and you should be good.

    Baseless hysteria and kneejerk reactions? In my GBAtemp? It's more likely than you think.

    Here's just one article on the subject. TL;DR - Yeah, the CAS is a bit of a pain in the butt. No, it is not the end of your freedoms; in fact, it actually has some nice benefits. If you're a pirate, more likely than not, you'll be able to keep your peg-leg and eye-patch.

    But, you know, if the ineffectual petition/boycott bandwagon is more your thing, good luck with that.

    most likely it wont be the end of "piracy" FAIR USE , but it still means they are obviously doing DPI and spying on your internet activity ,its the principal
    they still havent gave up on CISPA , SOPA,PIPA ,ACTA and the rest of it

    If you pirate in a way that makes it easy to get caught, you have no room to complain if you get caught.

    Public trackers, direct downloads, etc.

    Usenet ftw.

    They still might go after you if they think you're downloading an illegal file even if it's legit. Besides, I don't like those government goons tracing my every move.

    its not stealing its called FAIR USE , the contents comapnies have everyone brainwashed to think that fair use is "stealing" its fucking bullshit,
    its not piracy unless you are making multiple copies and selling them for profit

    You keep using those words. I do not think they mean what you think they mean.
