The government cares the same about spam and DVD piracy. No one has bought any
body's attention yet . It takes multi-million dollar lobbyists to influence
the corruption that our US government is becoming. If you want spam to stop,
you need rich corporations spending mega dollars on political campaigns that
want spam to end. If the RIAA and the MPAA didn't didn't toss so much money in
front of politicians, you would have no laws on copying DVD's or music.
