I am a physician (Iimagine one of the few who frequent this site). I practice in Canada, but we have a similar governing body in our jurisdiction. I don't know the precise rules for this kind of scenario, but I pretty sure anyone who had this type of complaint made against him or her would be sanctioned by the college. A first offence would likely involve a formal reprimand, and a mandatory ethics at one's own expense. Of course, these individuals may still face a separate copyright infringement court case.

Useful in Canada
This will be very handy for me to access Hulu on my TV, which I can currently do on my laptop/desktop, but not on any tablet or on my TVs hooked up to a PS3 and Apple TV due to licensing restrictions. (It's technically possible to work around this with a US credit card and US mailing address, but I can't be bothered setting this up.) My laptops don't have HDMI out, so for $35, this is a bargain. I agree that in some markets this won't be overly useful.
Not being an American...
I don't believe everyone has the right to own a handgun. In my country, owning a handgun is not easy. These downloadable plans make it (relatively) easy for anyone at my daughter's school to acquire one. Easy access to guns for kids is just downright stupid, and will inevitably lead to tragedy and heartbreak for many families down the road. If Amercans all want to give their kids guns, that's their prerogative, but keep them the hell away from our kids. Everyone owning a gun is not a part of our culture. Americans most certainly do not have the right to distribute firearms to our kids. And please spare me the semantic arguments about how this is not the same as distributing actual guns.
Re: Second Deadbolt on the Front Door
Well, it helps for those with easily solvable security questions, and for those with passwords such as "Pa55word".
The new party line
They tried the same thing here in Canada, when the public safety minister said that people who are against their proposed legislation are "with the child pornographers". Fortunately, there was a huge backlash and the legislation was dumped (for now). Big brother is working hard to expand his reach.

No need to fall for a scam...
If you want to see a head of state get rough with someone, Canada's former prime minister "the boy from Shawinigan" Jean Chretien shows how it's done for real: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMBJp0yJvsY
