Journal rfc1394's Journal: BBC Radio program on Pirates

A BBC World Service radio program about piracy begins with the reporter in London trying to buy a pirated DVD of Pirates of the Caribbean from a street vendor, how the studios are trying to stop this even as they do films glorifying the pirate mentality, and how typically the countries that tried the hardest to pirate material (such as the U.S. toward other countries back in the 19th century) have ended up becoming the most opposed to it as they became developers of literary and intellectual works. Includes an interview with one of the founders of The Pirate Bay and you can even pirate^H^H^H^H^H^H download a 22 minute podcast of the program from here.
