who read "6000 TB = 1 PB" as = 1 Pirate Bay?
implies courts and judicial over-site etc etc, not just shutting down a website on an accusation alone.
are the reasons there's a skills gap. I was made redundant from a general IT and software support role (off-shored to India) over a year ago, but all the companies (over 500) I have approached want people who are already good at the role they have vacant. No one seems willing to spend money and train a potentially suitable candidate with the lacking skills.
On £65 JSA a week i can't afford to go and professionally learn C++ or Java programming*, and the little I learned on my HNC wouldn't even get my CV from an agency to the employer.

You can't steal knowledge, poor tabloid sensationalist journalism again.
..has been and always will be bad for the consumer - a logical fallacy to create use by adding restrictions.
If they'd have made a copy rather than stolen the original it would be piracy, surely? </sarcasm>
I think the lack of a point played every part in its downfall - those that can surf the web can use things like iPlayer, 4od etc etc, and with a little step froward can grab everything via torrents. What compelling reason did they offer Joe Public to use or even pay for their service?
Well that's enough sunshine and real life...
.. back to the basement
