As for WW2, the honours would have to be shared between the USSR and the US.

Well, given that 5 million German troops were lost on the eastern front against Soviet Russia and ~800 000 were lost on the western front against allied troops (also british, canadian, etc.), many would say a greater part of the honour would belong to USSR.

I do not know exactly how oink works (worked?), but from the quote

All I do is really like Google, to really provide a connection between people. None of the music is on my website.

Wouldn't that make exactly the same defence valid for Pirate Bay and other torrent sites?

Yes, but it seems to be a one way street? Remember the US air force pilot that killed 20 people when cutting the cables of a cable car in Italy, some years ago?

Iirc they wanted him extradited to Italy, but that was a no go. He was tried in the US and the jury found him "not guilty".

How many surrealists does it take to screw in a lightbulb? One to hold the giraffe and one to fill the bathtub with brightly colored power tools.
