10 Sharing Sites To Be 'Banned' by The Malaysian Government

I was floored when I read this recent headline:

"No more free downloads as MCMC blocks 10 file sharing sites"

Apparently, a 'war' on piracy has been 'declared' in Malaysia. Note the air quotes.

Then there was a list of the sites that have been/will be hijacked.

These are the precious sites











 I thank all the gods worshipped in this world, including Tom Cruise for sparing EZTV.

"The unauthorised use of copyright work is destroying the industry." I believe this is true people.  Let's see the impact.

Angelina Jolie won't be able to enjoy her daily caviar dish.  Lady Gaga won't be able to afford to pay the butcher for her meat outfit.  The Glee kids won't be able to afford to go for their Glee Tour.  And Justin Bieber has to go back to school.  Public school.

Unspeakable terror of 'normal life' would reign upon the celebrities all over the world.

Then people would be forced to buy only local artists' albums and watch those cliche scripted/story line local movies - 'coz these are the only entertainment they could afford.  Not to say that ALL of them are bad though.

Huh.  Now I see it.

But it's not the end of the world people. 

We have the geeks to save the day.  They'll find a loophole to satisfy your sharing needs.

Befriend a geek today!
