Comment: Musicians are Artists (Score 0, Troll) 510

Musicians are artists. Their work should not be copied and distributed without their consent on a mass scale. Why not, you ask. Because it constitutes as theft, unless declared otherwise by the artist or the music company. So what? This is significant because people who have done so in the past have been made examples by massive lawsuits. There is a gray area between right and wrong but I doubt anyone pirates music because they need it to maintain their physical body.

These are human-rights activists concerned about a potential "Internet clampdown". Why isn't the Internet in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights? Surely a revision is needed to validate this path of logic, although to lose access to a wealth of information via the Internet is very painful, that I will admit.
