    cutting down on piracy, getting really serious now. Also I just heard a report on the radio that Holland is going to be affected first. They are taking down a lot of Dutch CDs and movies as we speak. [​IMG]

    I think it's a good idea of them, but taking down ONLY Dutch films and music? That's really lame.

    Don't ever pay for movies or music. Especially music. F*** the music industry. They're getting what they deserve.
