In that editorial of reallylinux.com, some concerns are exposed about the "fairness" of US legal system, related to how it solved the Microsoft trial, the SCO threat and the possibility of linux being declared (again) un-american.In that editorial of reallylinux.com, some concerns are exposed about the "fairness" of US legal system, related to how it solved the Microsoft trial, the SCO threat and the possibility of linux being declared (again) un-american.

But the more intesting part was the comparation on how the US legal system penalizes piracy and rape.For duplicating and selling DVDs you will get twice the prision time and 25 times in fines than what you could get for raping.

This will damage even more the classic "geek" image, that could prefer to copy a dvd at a higher risks than, god forbids, get a woman in a way or another.

Jokes apart, i suppose that a lawyer could find more clever examples where Law is more far from Justice or Moral than in this one, or what happens when in the Justice scales you put a bunch of money on one of the sides, but at least for me that this kind of things happens is pretty bad.
