Submission + - IP Piracy funds terrorism

letxa2000 writes: CBS News reports "Attorney General Michael Mukasey warned Friday that the huge profits generated from piracy and counterfeiting are fostering terrorism... "Criminal syndicates, and in some cases even terrorist groups, view IP crime as a lucrative business and see it as a low-risk way to fund other activities," Mukasey said." "Before Friday's speech, Mukasey met privately with representatives from companies including Apple Inc. and Adobe Systems Inc. A day earlier, the attorney general also met with entertainment industry executives in Los Angeles during his three-day California trip." So now they're trying to link IP "piracy" to terrorism?
