My slashdot password does not need to be high entropy. I can probably use the same password for a soylentnews account. While it's true that if one gets compromised, they both do, guess what? I don't care. Nope. Not one bit. Facebook's different, email's different, my bank is different. What do I care if my pointless accounts get compromised? If you're using these types of accounts on computers you don't control, it makes sense to have easy to remember passwords and keep the high-entropy passwords for the actually important stuff.

First, Copyright infringement is a civil matter and should remain a civil matter. Second, IP address and times are a terrible way to identify a person. With VPNs, proxies, dynamic IP addresses and carrier grade NAT, IP address is about the least reliable way to figure out who is doing something. The evidence we use for theft and breaking and entering is much more solid than the evidence given for Copyright infringement.

They do, but in most western countries, there's this idea that anybody can make it rich, if they're good enough. If it gets to the point where the rich kids are inherently smarter/better than the poor kids, no amount of work will be able to lift a person up. They'll be stuck where they're born and that's it.
