Looks like there's yet more of the desperation that is to 'help'
Microsoft, Hollywood et al, and the RIAA:

Pirating Microsoft Windows will get you a life sentence
Killer application. No taxation without representation


The US copyright con is out of control
Comment: Call for life sentences highlights systemic daftness

Gonzales proposes new crime: 'Attempted' copyright infringement
Posted by Declan McCullagh

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is pressing the U.S. Congress to enact
a sweeping intellectual-property bill that would increase criminal
penalties for copyright infringement, including "attempts" to commit piracy.
