So if a company in the US were to take content from a UK or Canadian act and sell it online for cheap, and paid a small licensing fee to the US government but not a dime to the artists themselves, that's fine? Come on man, this is piracy by anyone's definition.
Besides which, what Molly's saying is that it is illegal for people within the US to access that service, even if it's legal in Russia. And that's absolutely true, just as it's illegal for most people in the US to access online gambling sites or child porn sites based overseas in countries where that kind of thing may be legal. She's not being US-centric, she's stating a fact.
As usual Molly shows her inability to realise that the world does not actually revolve around the USA - thank god or somebody would have patented breathing by now.
What I'm referring to is Molly's rant about how the US trade representative has declared allofmp3.com a pirate site - Who cares what the US trade representative thinks! Last I knew Russia was a sovereign country - I say block americans from accessing the site
Quotes from Show
Tom - ?The US doesn?t get to decide what?s in legal within Russia? ? Maybe a surprise to poor Molly. Tom ? ?The US is saying what you?re doing, it may be legal in Russia but it?s not ok for our people to access it?, Molly ? ?Well actually the US is just saying this is a notorious pirate site market place period? ? So, does the US care when the UN declares that holding prisoners without trial on a island for years is illegal? There are many other examples of the US ignoring international law.
When the US starts taking heed of international law then maybe just maybe you can expect the rest of the world to take you seriously. Oh no hang we do have to take you seriously otherwise we?ll be invaded ? doh!
