Comment: Re:Let's say "Warez sire found in Taiwan" Now what (Score 2) 336

Moreover, why should the people of Taiwan be punished for doing something that locally, is perfectly legal? It's the people sitting in foreign lands FTPing into their servers and downloading that are committing (where the foreigner resides) a crime. And it's not the job of Taiwanese locals to see that other people in other lands obey the other land's local laws.

A reversed example: Porn is illegal in most Islamic nations. What if OPEC said "Stop making your porn web sites accessible from our nations or we cut off your supply of oil?".

We expect everyone to obey our laws, but don't give a crap about local legal stuff in the USA violating laws is some foreign nation (see also Ebay selling nazi artifacts; illegal in France, Austria, Germany).
