Do the feds and lawmakers sue the information for insider trading in the name of personal gain? Me thinks the government is only looking out for personal, financial and political gain, and not national security

This administration bundles COPYRIGHT PROTECTION (music/film piracy) under the responsibilities of HOMELAND SECURITY. This is not about national security and terrorist attacks, it is about being buddies to the donors in Big Media.

I’m reading a book right now about the mafia and MCA records. In the late 1970s some FBI agents left to go work for RIAA at double or triple their pay and “partnered with the FBI” to break up a large bootlegging operation. Basically the music business bought themselves some FBI agents to do the work for them.

Pay for play. Payola.

I agree the copyright violation is often criminal, but there isn’t anyone looking out for the citizens when their house gets broken into. Little prosecution or even evidence collection.

Why the $%&$ should the government put a higher priority on halting the production/transfer of copyrighted materials than physical personal property, armed thuggery, and terrorism?
