RapidShare actually seems pretty gung-ho (and somewhat efficient) about removing copyrighted content, so I can understand their outrage. They've made alot of effort to ensure that what copyrighted content does get uploaded is removed to the best of their ability. I mean, hell, YouTube does the exact same thing, and you can almost certainly find copyrighted material there right this minute. I would reckon that Google is used to an extent in piracy. How many people do you think find cracks via google? And anyway, there was a time when UseNet was the most active means of software piracy. Does that mean that UseNet should have been shut down? (Trick question: most people don't use UseNet anymore anyway)

Rights are not granted by gods but by societies. According to the Bible, "God" gives you the right to beat your slaves as long as you don't kill them. And, also, "God" gives men but not women the right to speak in church, and gives women the right to force their rapists to marry them.
