"Piracy is largely conducted by the middle class and destroys working class jobs."

I'd call this bullshit but no bull is large enough to make such a huge pile of shit.

As shown by France's three strike laws, trying to kill piracy via this means actually resulted in a drop in actual legal sales. Piracy drops, sales drop thus it can be concluded that anti piracy laws destroy working class jobs......
