Not to spread misinformation, but from what I can tell is that people are gonna be ASSED OUT if they get caught with illegally downloaded “works.” I do know that the term “works” covers a huge range of properties, music, movies, games, whatever, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Basically this law enables the government to appoint an “Intellectual Property Czar” to catch people and severely punish those that download illegally. Of course it all depends on how well the gov’t enforces it. So now you’ll have the RIAA, the MPAA, and the Federal Government after you if you decide to download that new Khia CD “just to try it out.”

Reasonably speaking they could just be talkin’ that good sh*t as always and resort to good ‘ol scare tactics to keep people from downloading. Or you can wake up one day without your computer either in a jail cell, looking at a ton of subpoenas, or both. I don’t know man. I can’t call it. I wonder what they do with your stuff after they “confiscate” it. They prolly rock it like it was their own haha. Story jacked from joystiq, check this article and this page for more info. Anyway, as always, just be careful with what and where you click.
