Comment Re:I hope P.B. win this trial (Score 1) 406

Exaktly, the Betamax all over again. If the court upholds the law, TPB will go free. If the court do not uphold the law (sic), much worse things will come down the road when makers of general tools can be convicted of contribution to copyright infringiment. It is huge. Makers of most electronic goods around the world will be affected and maybe forced to close down if they refuse to pay the masters of MPAA and friends. Very few people have understood this, and certainly not the lawyers involved in this political trial, they think it is about filesharing.
