Amazon wants your opinions to be heard
I guess Amazon cares more about making a few extra dollars than allowing their customers to know the truth about the products they stock.

Ohio State officials speculated that they received so many notices because OSU is the largest school in the country, with about 60,000 students. However, Ohio State didn't make the recording industry association's first list of top offenders, which tallied notices from Sept. 1, 2007, to Nov. 9, 2007. The recording industry can't identify the students, so it notifies the school about activity on its computer network. The trade group relies on the school to have the song in question removed.
The RIAA replied to the news by stating, "It gives us a broad snapshot of the extent to which piracy is a problem on a campus."
Ohio State has tried to limit piracy by blocking ports, limiting bandwidth, disscussing the problem with freshmen and even started their own, legal service, but apparently it isn't helping or students just don't care.

Progressive author and lawyer Glenn Greenwald, who writes for Salon.com, and blogger Jane Hamsher of Firedoglake, are spearheading the effort. They've hired the political media consultants behind a historic Ron Paul online fundraising drive to organize a similar "moneybomb," set to go off Aug. 8.
"That is the day Richard Nixon resigned, and the idea is that 35 years ago when you did this kind of stuff, you were forced out of office, and now congress drops everything to make your crimes legal," says Hamsher in an interview.
Similar grassroots drives have been made by other groups, such as Blue America PAC, of which Firedoglake is a part, has already hired Advomatic and Advomatic Laboratories in New York City, to create a VOIP widget that lets voters call their senators ask them what their stance is on the spy legislation, and to urge them to vote for an amendment that would remove the telecom immunity provision.
So far, 1,600 calls have been made using the tool, which launched Wednesday, says Matt Browner Hamlin, Advomatic Laboratories' founder.
The group had previously ran a automated call campaign in late June against House Majority Leader and Maryland Representative Steny Hoyer, who organized the vote for the legislation. And it's run television ads against Reps. John Barrow, D-Ga., and Chris Carney, D-Pa — the so-called Blue Dog Democrats who pushed for the legislation.
Just as a reminder to anyone who might have forgot, the Senate vote on this is Wednesday. Call your congress critter and make your voice known while there is still time.
Their Blue America PAC is already targeting House Democrats who voted for the bill, including placing a full-page ad in the Washington Post slamming House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, who claimed credit for creating the so-called compromise bill. The coalition plans to follow-up with a Ron Paul-style money bomb, which will be used to target key Senators, according to Greenwald.
Perhaps the fight isn't totally lost after all."
Democrats who switched from opposing to supporting legal amnesty to telecoms that aided the government's warrantless wiretapping program received twice as much money, on average, from telcom political action groups than Democrats whose opposed the idea in March and again last Friday, according to an analysis of campaign donations by Maplight.org.
I guess that explains the sudden "change of heart" in our Congress Critters.
