Re: Who cares about Senator Patrick Leahy?

said by FFH5:

Leahy is right about this is in his statement:
Somewhere in China today, in Russia today, and in many other countries that do not respect American intellectual property, criminals who do nothing but peddle in counterfeit products and stolen American content are smugly watching how the United States Senate decided it was not even worth debating how to stop the overseas criminals from draining our economy.”

It doesn't matter if he's right or wrong for that matter. Who cares at the moment what the criminals oversees are saying? Americans realized how bad these bills were. If stopping the bills this time also meant stopping the debate, then so be it. They all can go cry me a river, build a bridge and get the f over it.

There's a saying that we should rather 10 guilty men go free than jail one innocent man. In this case, we're not immediately taking action against some overseas pirates*, in order to not shut down legitimate businesses/individuals. I'd say that's an acceptable tradeoff.

*This is putting aside, for a second, the fact that SOPA probably wouldn't have stopped them anyway.
