The show has a copyright......it involves self-enRICHment.

I agree with the confusing part......the copyright states that there is clearly a "private end" for "private actors" but the "public actors" (every human on the planet?) are now debting whether it is right or wrong....???

Oh.....and I have been involved in a lawsuit for 3 years regarding the death (murder) of a family member (actual human) and have seen little more than a circus performance from the "public actors" involved. So I am a bit biased on the "legal system" and what it actually has to offer our animal brethren.....

Thank you. This, people.

The word 'pirate' has a specific legal meaning, and a 300-year history of unambiguous use.

Unlike the fuzzy, toxic word 'terrorist', the word (and legal definition of) 'pirate' is not available to be applied indiscriminately to any political activists who happen to annoy you.
