More > reputation. Still, the overall picture hints that a significant number of users participate in such ill-famed activities. Given this situation, could illegal file sharing actually be a positive process for downloaders and the collectivity ?

More > Western society. It trashes the old paradigm of Left and Right and replaces it with a new one, and measures the relationship in terms of Freedom and Respect.
