What I find more interesting is the fact that the RIAA and MPAA have both 
been convicted multiple times of price fixing and other illegal 
monopolistic practices. Yet almost nobody knows about this. They have 
done an excellent job of supressing media reporting on it.

And these same organizations are working closely with specific congressmen 
to ram radical new monopoly-protecting legislation through congress...

Thats like congressmen working alongside convicted bank robbers to write 
pro-gun laws.
