How many, useless, commas, can I put, in this, comment?

I can count, five, commas, in your sentence.

In Communist China those commas would be arrested for sedition taken out back and shot by round bullets.

Did you know 75% of grade school kids deal pirated media to each other on the recess playground?

I know you're kidding around but when I can find any game, movie or piece of music using nothing a torrent client and Google then I think it's also safe to say that piracy is pretty widespread.

"China and Russia you say? Not even close". Hardly. The report analyses what they can analyse, which is P2P traffic. Chine and Russia piracy isn't founded on P2P networks, but on stolen, and copied, media which is sold to customers for very cheap. This kind of activity cannot be measured in the tools used by the report. The report also mentions that those country have the highest downloads of all country surveyed. It doesn't say who has the highest uploads, or what exactly are the numbers in the US.

Piracy is rampant. Did you know 75% of grade school kids deal pirated media to each other on the recess playground? It's the gateway into digital piracy on the internet later in their lives. Shut down schools! Shut down the internet! These both cut significantly into the profits for the upper echelons. Sure, the developers/musicians cut into it a lot too but we can't completely cut them out or who will make these guys rich? It takes a lot of work to become obscenely wealthy off the hard work and ingenuity of other people. Show some respect!

I wouldn't be surprised if those were just the countries that they want to put pressure on currently, so they release some random percentages to try to influence policy. Maybe there's some law that's currently being voted on? It's not like they're above that.

ESA, BSA, RIAA and MPAA all use crap data and voodoo math to come up with "piracy" numbers. Me, I think they just put numbers in a hat and let the janitor pull them out.

No reason to trust esa, without seeing the actual data, since they constantly, LIE.  
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

You're probably right, which is one reason why piracy is still done primarily using physical media in China and Russia.

I doubt China and Russia have a wide and cheap enough broadband infrastructure to support heavy piracy. Or so my American anti-Eastern instinct is telling me.
