SMART or NOT! …. the closing of megavideo and megaupload and the lies of SOPA

This is like saying that becasue on that high street there is someone selling counterfeited goods instead of going after the limited illegal selling of counterfeited goods they shut down the entire street or any other street where “even one” illegal copy of something is sold.

If it were true that data should be compared to real physical commodities or that by that principle they should share the same identical values and economic principles open that “SECOND HAND file exchange website” already, because sure enough if I bought and own it I can TRADE, EXCHANGE or RE SELL IT when I want ….. or not?

One more proof that people does not have yet a sense that virtual and real are forever connected and that common sense and the law should not be able to undo what decades of social struggles and civil rights evolution have accomplished.
