Hollywood is targeting nearly 5,000 Aussies who downloaded Dallas Buyers Club illegally – but who is responsible if the offence occurs in the workplace?

    How did we as a society get to this absurd situation where the employer is held responsible for their employees breaking the law.

    How are we supposed to know if what were watching or listening to is copyrighted? Isn't everything copyrighted automatically? So how is listening or watching something that's copyrighted illegal? How did possessing information become illegal? How do you know what information it is, until you possess it? Is the whole point of this to make sure that we don't watch or listen to anything unless it comes from a big household-name corporation? Because, damn it, I'd give up listening to music and watching movies for ever, before I'll ever give a single dollar to another multi-billion dollar corporation!
