I have often come out warning our membership, both publicly and privately, about the serious nature of the escalation of copyright enforcement. Last year I told of the individual who got 10 years in a US Federal penitentiary for operating a cutsie-pie media website - the kind that links to copyrighted movies and TV shows, but says, disclaimer, we aren't responsible if these links go to a site with illegal content, and by the way, here's this week's blockbuster! Nice. Real cute, but for the next 9 years, his job will be to make little pebbles out of big rocks, because prosecutors and juries aren't stupid. Everyone knows that you don't get something for nothing. Well, here's that next step in the enforcement escalation I warned about last year. Copyright Wars escalate: Britain to extradite student to US over link site Now we are importing criminal offenders of our laws if we can extradite them. Think long and hard about that, my friends. In addition to that, I warned that enforcement would be stepping it up and making examples of end-users. Civil monetary penalties already existed. Jail time could be coming next. I wasn't believed by a number of folks when I made my last two predictions. They both came true. Violating copyrights is immoral, illegal and it depresses the family dog something fierce. Please don't do it, and if you don't want to obey the law, please don't make AndroidForums.com a party to your acts. Whether it's ripping off movies, books, shows or software, none of that has a place here. And to the vast, overwhelming majority of our membership that doesn't pirate, and who may kindly remind others of this and who report these sad few occurrences on our site, I want to extend my deepest personal thanks!
