Piracy on the Net

SOPA, PIPA and ACTA

Are ‘designed’ to stop internet piracy because the big recording industry is losing money.

My question is…

Where were these infringing laws when the recording industry is the biggest damn pirate the ever existed?

The recording industry has been stealing copyrights to music long before the internet. Who tried to stop the bastards then?

Opinion:

It would seem that the recording industry is squealing like a stuck pig so the governments run to their aid.

When the industry itself has been doing exactly the same thing to artists for years.
