Fair enough, I'd rather have the US get last dibs on the internet than China for example. Still, currently it's global, so what is right and who has jurisdiction will be debatable (let's leave it at that then
). As for the rights management: the current law in the US seems to be driven by money rather than the system in place for it (e.g. court etc.), look at MegaUpload. Yes I know, illegal once again, but completely besides that point: it was an FBI operation subverting the judicial system, while suddenly they want to bring them to 'justice' (everyone knows that once they get to the USA they will be found guilty, no matter the defence). Maybe someone can enlighten me or remove some stereotypes I didn't know I had?
Edit: it's not called Off-Topic for nothing right?
