Online piracy and intellectual property

by Neil Rickert

Today, Wikipedia is having a blackout to protest SOPA, the proposed anti-piracy legislation.  Fortunately, it is looking as if SOPA will not pass in its current form.  I support the Wikipedia protest.

Personally, I do not approve piracy, nor do I practice it.  In fact, I rarely listen to on-line music or watch movies or other entertainment online, unless it is part of an informational video, typically at youtube and linked from a blog or news source.
