Abortion is to politics as online piracy is to movies; the hot button issue that will never be resolved, the debate with two intractable sides that refuse to even consider the other's argument, the conversation where any attempt at civil discussion inevitably devolves into name-calling and anger.  Copyright supporters believe pirates are hurting business for everyone, pirates believe they're hurting no one.  Copyright supporters say piracy is theft; pirates say no definition of theft describes theft that doesn't disturb the original property.  Around and around we go, in a whirlpool of torrents and tirades.
