Does youtube and many intellectual property piracy free for all? The internet has allowed copyright infringement and piracy to be violated freely and the government can't regulate online piracy. The cost is lost of jobs in the entertainment industry. There are people going to jail for counterfieting Luis Vuitton bags same as copyright infringement in internet. it's the government job to enforce laws or have no laws at all. music and movie piracy is rampant. google even think it can scan books in the library and not paying the authors? people think content should be 'free' and don't have a problem with piracy on the internet. downloading illegal pirated music or movies is same as stealing it from store. lost taxes and lost jobs in the economy from rampant piracy. there is no free lunch.
