    It's getting worse tbh. The proposed new welfare laws are shocking.

    So if you were muscian out of interest and somebdy recorded a two minute clip and upload it on to somewhere like youtube it wouldn't be a problem for you?

    On another matter what do people make on the proposed takeover of Qantas? Personally if you are a shareholder it is great news. Although (unless I haven't seen it) I'm surprised no Union bigwig hasn't appeared on the news red faced frothing at the mouth over such a proposal.

    Sale? What are you talking about? It's a takeover. It's a public company. This whole hysteria is abit rich tbh. The company is on the stock market, obviously it's possible for it to be taken out of Australians hands. I'll admit it's slightly sad, but people complaining about it and calling for government intervention are so out of touch it's not funny.

    Fair enough on both counts.

    Although I was trying to ask from a different perpestive (the one about the copyright laws), more like I was trying to think/ask from outside the square and if he was in their shoes but I probably made a hash of it in the process. Then again I'm not like other people who have set views on a subject no matter what, in that I try to think of both angles.

    You get me now?

    Nah, fair enough. The point is though the laws would be an absolute farce, you can't put your own music on your Ipod, not to mention an utter violation of your rights, read the article and you'll see how barbaric it seems.

    As you say, it wouldn't have any impact on drug use, and even if it did, "pipes and smoking implements" can be used for things other than crystal meth. It's basically like banning rolling papers because people use them to roll joints, or shops refusing to sell lighters to people under 18, and other such absurd laws which have been suggested in the past.
