BitTorrent Users Terrorists?

I'm surprised, for once, that the MPAA or the RIAA have not yet made this ignorant statement, as has Håkan Roswall who is prosecuting The Pirate Bay whom likened them to terrorist--in particular to the IRA and the IRA's armed forces.

So in essence those whom are members of The Pirate Bay--who download/upload torrents to/from The Pirate Bay are in one way or another 'terrorists'--or at least accomplices to 'terrorism'...

Those of us here in the US should already know that being complacent makes us an accomplice to terrorism--and now it appears that a certain Prosecutor in Sweden is alluding, in essence, that BitTorrent users, at least those whom use The Pirate Bay as of now, are 'terrorist' or accomplices to 'terrorism'.

This ladies and gentlemen is a dream for the MPAA and the RIAA. If such terminology were to be pronounced here in the US--BitTorrent users would have upon them the 'special' provisions of The Patriot Act, Military Commissions Act of 2006, not to mention the DMCA if not more applied to them in thickest most dense degree possible, to fullest extent of the 'law'.

Which is why, again I say, it surprises me that the MPAA and the RIAA have not yet stated such an ignorant statement as the one that has been said--not that they haven't said ignorant statments in the past before--for truly the things they say are beyond the definition of ignorant.

However it is their handiwork. The prosecution that is being brought upon The Pirate Bay is in regards to the brief takedown of The Pirate Bay back in 2006 which was in fact brought on by the 'influencing' of the MPAA upon the Ministry of Justice in Sweden, which is illegal by the way--but then again what does the MPAA do that isn't illegal?

So there you go. Take heed--for it seems that BitTorrent users are in some ways 'terrorists'--at least in the eyes of Håkan Roswall.
