Hi pirates,

I found a beautiful paper about the risk of copyright in the digital age. It 
calculates the amount of compensation claims a usual citizen accumulates over 
an average day: $12.000.000 - without burning a single cd, sharing files over 
p2p or circumventing copy protection.


It is a nice reference point for argumentation as well as a source for harsh  
US copyright cases.

It would be interesting to see comparable costs for other countries than the 
USA. For german laws I will compile a similar average guy for a lecture in 
January (but of course I am not as firm as the US law professor).
