arne_bab is a great assister to others; your light through the dark tunnel

I don't see the post as paranoid.

The media companies took some serious money into their hands to harm/stop p2p, and the laws changed in quite strange ways - ways which didn't benefit their voters (since a high percentage of their own voters are p2p users, they endangered their own positions which is highly unusual for politicians).

So I'm quite sure that the media companies are taking heavy influence - and I don't doubt that they will resort to illegal ways, since their whole business concept is in danger: "You get your media only through us - and we take a share of what you pay".

Note how highspeed internet is breaking down that concept, and how DRM fits into their concept.
