Canadian MP says everyone who eats is a copyright thief

COPYRIGHT is a big issue. And the debate involves all manner of idiots. Take Canada’s Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs Dean Del Mastro. In his mind, if you copy a CD – one you’ve bought – onto an iPod or any other MP3 player – you a thief.  Yeah. Really. He actually says:

“It’s like going to a clothing store and buying a pair of socks and going back and saying by the way it wasn’t socks that I needed, what I really wanted was shoes. So I’m just going take these, I’m gonna format shift from socks to shoes and I’m not gonna pay anything because it was all for my feet.”

D’yer see? You buy a chicken sandwich but at home put the chicken in a different kind of bread. That’s theft! You buy raw food and cook it. Theft! You buy a magazine, rip out a photo and stick it your bedroom wall. Theft! You drink the bath water? Theft!!

You’re all criminals. All of you…
