Just a quick note...

I wanted to link to this petition because I think it's an important one.
Regardless of your feelings on piracy, and I'm no great fan of it personally, the extent to which the law, both national and international, is being used as a tool of big corporations at the expense of the civil liberties of normal citizens should be a frightening thing.  
Businesses should not be able to wield this much power, nor should foreign governments be able to demand the extradition of a country's citizens for reasons as flimsy as this - the British government (I use this word in it's loosest possible sense) in particular has been consistently guilty of spineless capitulation to American requests for extradition.  This is not right.

So I urge you to sign this petition, for what ever small good it can do, and hope that reason prevails over greed and politics.
