Piracy is a big problem so if the UK government can`t or will not sort it out then the EU will and a good thing to.

When you say "That's all we need". are we to assume that you are in favour of piracy then?

Piracy comes in all shapes and forms, perhaps that is why some companies make excessive profits, especially when they only want to lease their software to the honest fare paying public.

I wonder if the intervention of the EU will suppress activities in the Far East regions!.

Not against the anti-piracy, but the amendment allowing the government to decide which software can be used "on the web".

Now that could mean the software running this forum.

Why would anyone make that assumption?

Which software could they be talking about that can only be used for piracy?
