Re: Oh well.

in the US an additional fee on all broadband monthly bills might take them down a path they do not want. Someone could pirate and then with the right lawyer and right jury win a piracy trial. Simply because they could turn around and state they thought that fee authorized them to download music and movies. "I am paying for it" would effectively become a valid excuse.

If we're talking about a criminal trial and I'm on the jury, it doesn't even have to be the right lawyer or right other 11 jurors. I will guarantee a hung jury, at the least.

That is what disgust and disdain for the RIAA and MPAA get them from me. I don't pirate media, but sure as heck don't appreciate non governmental entities acting as though they have the right to enforce laws and impose fines.
