    Wait guys!! But Sony needs more money, so much more money that pissing off a whole town is irrelevant. But in the end they showed us, huh!! We'll never go and illegally download some movie that isn't even worth the three dollar rental fee at the local Blockbuster, will we guys!! And we'll keep buying Sony products too!! It's ok for them to do that, they are after all, a big company. And we are merely mortal fools pricked by the puppet strings of mega-big conglomerate company-gods who deserve every electronic table scrap they allow us.

    Someone point me to where this is Sony's fault. All I see is the MPAA up to its usual draconian punishment schemes.

    I didn't realize that the MPAA had such control over the internet. I guess you learn something new everyday.

    It's what happens when understanding and legislation on copyright and the internet fall behind the technology. The MPAA is just the loudest guy in the room.

    I can't even see where the MPAA have done anything. Looks like the town shut down the service by itself as it didn't want to spend the money on putting adequate measures in place to prevent the service being used for illegal downloads. Only person to blame here is the twat who broke the law and screwed things up for everyone else.

    I agree and the stupid thing about what the MPAA is trying to do is that it won't stop people sharing music,movies and etc even if the manage to some how stop people from doing it over the Internet, the sharing will still happen off line like it did before the Internet made it easier, its a bit late yo put the cork back in after the genie has escaped, all that can be done is minimize the free sharing of movies , music and etc

    Thank you for correcting me. I guess I incorrectly filled in the blanks between the inexplicit network disabler and the following MPAA commentary.

    Still, I think this situation highlights the fear and misunderstanding about copyright, and the predatory tactics groups like the MPAA have used. It's really a shame that an open public network was euthanized to sidestep a potential lawsuit.
