[ Piratetimes] Portugal declares File-Sharing for personal use Legal  

post #1 of 19

After the anti-piracy group ACAPOR reported IP addresses of 2,000 suspected file sharers, the Portuguese Department of Investigation and Penal Action (DIAP) has come to a somewhat surprising conclusion: not only will these file sharers not be prosecuted, but it seems that file sharing for personal use is not illegal in Portugal.

Suddenly... A US Government trade embargo appears.

Portuguese used "Not Care" Attack

It's Super Effective (at killing the economy)

Portuguese Economy Fainted

Bring out another Country?

Brazil says "hello Portugal, welcome to the club".

It has always been like that in Brazil. It isn't piracy as long as you're not making profit out of file sharing. I like being free as much as I like knowing new bands (and buying their albuns) that I would never know of if wasn't for file sharing.

@ Rubers - And I thought that the US was the home of the free, it's more the home of the lobby, sadly.

It's not fresh news but is still, relevant to this community i think.

Well, that's because some of the largest financiers in the US are from China.
