Tom Terrific broke the law

If the gov't is going to go after the "commoner" for downloading things that AREN'T AVAILABLE OTHERWISE, then this yahoo should be fined too. What really pisses me off about this isn't as much the fact that he didn't realize he shouldn't say things like this at news conferences, but a great deal of illegal downloading of media occurs because its distributor releases it on archaic schedules, in archaic formats with archaic restrictions. Many people would HAPPILY PAY for what they end up torrenting, if they could otherwise find it.

"I. Am. So. Stupid, but I'm porking Giselle so it all works out"

From the CBS article:
“Last year I was rehabbing my foot in Costa Rica, watching the game on an illegal Super Bowl website. And now I’m actually playing in the game. So, it’s pretty cool,” Brady said.

Web operator Yonjo Quiroa, of Comstock Park, Mich., was charged Wednesday with copyright infringement. Prosecutors said he distributed football, basketball and hockey games and wrestling matches.

Quiroa appeared in federal court in Grand Rapids, Mich., on Wednesday. He was held without bail while his immigration status was under review. Larry Phelan, his lawyer, declined to comment.

**Update** as of Sunday night - Congrats to the NY Giants for winning the 2012 Superbowl!
