You are a idiot. the Internet is not a linear path, its a network. You can't block an entire network when it spans the entire world. The **AA Utter Idiots also don't seem to understand the Streisand Effect, the more you block/hide something the more people will want it, and more sites will pop up. Its like chasing a racehorse by riding a slug; They will never succeed totally.

These corporations cannot on one hand screech that it's a "free market" and that they "serve only their shareholders" when committing price gouging, mass layoffs without dire need, subsidizing their low pay with public welfare, and other such actions, and then turn around and demand protection from that very "free market" when it renders them obsolete. Can't have that one both ways.

Hollywood is scared of the market it been ripping off since the internet stole control from it? that makes sense, the known con man will flee while the unknown will stay.

The Streisand Effect.
