A good point, but O'Reilly is not the RIAA. Regardless of your opinion of their moral stance, the RIAA have consistently acted like stupendous dorks (this is a Bowdlerization of my real feelings). O'Reilly has made efforts to be fair and balanced. For me the issue is impact - Britney needs my money like a hole in the head, so I wouldn't worry about it, but if I find a site distributing the content of a struggling local artist I might take steps.

    Yeah? But what about the people printing the CD covers of Britney? A drop in sells of Britney CDs gets them as well. Who knows, they may be the same people printing the covers of O'Reilly books.

      Good point, but at a certain point I have to stop thinking about the consequences of my actions. I feel responsible for first-order consequences, slightly guilty/proud of second-order consequences, and wholly unperturbed (if I am even aware of) third-order consequences.
