Copyright and Terrorism
Does the content industry's government-abetted predatory behavior facilitate terrorism? A couple of comments to that effect are plausible on their face. By creating a mass market for circumventions of "intellectual property", the industry may have stimulated development of evasive technologies that the bad guys would not have invented on their own. Mass circumventions have enabled the few actual villains to hide like needles in a haystack.
