What colour is the sky on this guy's planet??
He has drunk far too much of the copyright cartel's Kool-Aid. In what reality does copyright infringment result in JAIL TIME? In a world where custodial sentences are increasingly being reserved only for violent offences? Maybe this tory crook thinks that copyright infringement is a violent assault against the oversized profits of buggy-whip makers?
The notion that businesses with bad or obsolete business models should have the right to claim that newer and better businesses should prop up their businesses for them is scandalous, and a terrible precedent to set.
Next thing you know, he'll be demanding that buggy-whip makers will be entitled to tell car makers how they must support buggy-whip makers, etc etc.
It reflects the arrogance and studied cluelessness of his conservative milieu. Outrageous.
