Still fooled by the smoke and mirrors?

Even the media mafia knows that they are treating on very thin ice
there, and that even if they get a law passed in the US, they will get
sued to hell and back in other countries if they actually go cracking
Not to mention that they're talking about what is a CRIME in most
western jurisdictions. "conspiracy to commit a criminal offense"
anyone? As soon as this leaves the FUD stage, RIAA is in the same
league as MAFIA, and unless they are even more stupid than I believe
them to be, they know it.
