Not really. For all your claims of sheep I think this board tends to move as a herd. Not individually, but overall tone.

As for the whole censoring the internet argument, fuck companies. There are ways to do this without involving the government. Someone posts a video of an entire movie on a website? I'm cool with having the owner of that site fined, so long as the owner and the person posting are the same. If they aren't the same? The owner has to take it down and maybe delete the user account, at least if there are repeat issues, but there's no other action to take. If the website is a commercial organization dedicated to piracy? Yeah, I can see prosecuting a guy that made millions while bragging about being a pirate.

But these aren't common things and you can't write blanket legislation that covers them without covering a billion other things. Treat these are one-off things, as they did with MegaUpload.

Go after the people pirating to profit. Leave the kid watching X-Men First Class during study hall out of it. Hell, 20 years ago he was just watching a copy he made using 2 VCRs and a rented VHS anyway.
