I like this quote from the article:
The group wants action because, as it says, "last year our industry lost over $50 billion (USD) worldwide," though this includes all sorts of software piracy and counterfeiting, not just online file-sharing. It's easy to be skeptical of this number—it's more than the combined worldwide earnings of all motion picture box office receipts ($28 billion) and the major labels' recorded music sales ($18 billion).

I wish the BSA and all the rest would just go back to the smoke-filled rooms from whence they were spawned. They do nothing but spread false information about piracy and outright lies about revenue "losses" due to same.
