While governments in democracies have to and do create legislation around business and are inevitably concerned on any matter regarding its economy, a healthy democracy should show an obvious separation from state, corporations and businesses.
Although now, it seems a modern democracy even in war-time is more inclined to respond to the needs of companies rather than the populous as a whole. Probably because they pay in more tax. And while I'm not against protections for copyright material, I think it's an abuse of the system to use its power against its own citizens to make sure your company is fully protected, and by fully I mean these insane penalties they expect to impose on people.
Each time a new bill is brought forward like this it makes me question what they think matters most and what their priorities are... health, defence, the rights of the people, how about freedom? No it seems to be none of these, it seems to be the bucks Hollywood brings in and other major players alike.
And I can see why someone would say that is arrogant, but lets say it is not their priority, the former list is... that's ok, yet wouldn’t much more time be better served with those priorities instead of saturating the process of government with proposals for such legislation time after time?
