    The US was only 1 of MANY countries who were involved in the investigation. Canada and Germany were just 2 off the top of my head. You cant sit there and make such a generic comment about the US ruleing the world. US may have spearheaded the investigation but other countries agreed with the indictment. You can call it ruleing the world, but the world seemed to agree that what Mr. .Com was doing was illegal. In fact the file sharing was only a small part of what he was arrested for. He had many other charges filed against him.
    Maybe read a bit more...........

    Any sources, I though it was only US and New Zealand involved, but then again I didn't read into it that much ^^ Also no BBC, mainstream media always spins the truth and adjusts it.
  7. even with other countries involved on this...its weird that this comes the next day after left the SOPA without spoon...and its about the copyright thing and music that the companies fear....the ilegality of this guy its one thing but the FBI act involves the whole world itself so....why is so important this dot com guy? i mean, he is not osama bin laden or the next hitler , they dont they need less acts than showing off to make him pay, this is about money and corporations its like digital petroleum
