Yes, and this is a luxury we don't have and probably never will. BigCorp
Inc. already has the propaganda word "piracy" so deeply embedded in the
minds of the infoserfs, that opposing DRM automatically makes it look
like we support criminal behaviour. Which, in a way, we do.

CUT was pushing something the people of Britain already wanted, it
merely had to convince them it was feasible. It was never railing
against the perception of being in support of criminal activity.
