You know how we keep hearing officials from the movie and music industry whine about the hundreds of billions of dollars they lose to piracy? It looks like it's all made up, citing studies that were never apparently never done. You'd think that if someone had actually done these studies they would have stepped forward by now to present the data but it has never happened. It's long past time to dispense with SOPA, PIPA and any other anti-piracy bills they will probably spawn. Hollywood has no credibility.

No one disputes very seriously that there is a lot of content piracy going on, especially online.
