I can't even get some people (like Dave Warlick) to acknowledge the argument that file sharing might be ethical and that it might be the publishers who are the the pirates. In the mean time, the extortion continues as a grandmother sits in her sewing room and ponders why she is being threatened with a $100,000 lawsuit for buying a CD off eBay. To Warlick and the rest - if you're going to teach internet ethics, explain to me how it's ethical to shake down little old ladies for $300. Hm?
