I'll go so far as to say that they've actually hurt the 'stop piracy' mentality more then fixing it.First, even though they are slapping jail sentences and large fines on 3 people pirate bay continues as strong as ever. If they managed to shutdown pirate bay, well so what, on to the next torrent site. Shut down enough torrent sites and one of the other current p2p alternatives using encrypted clouds becomes the dominant method.The only way to stop massive file sharing is to kill the bandwidth at the ISP levels and that effectively kills the internet.

Actually there was a big stink about people recording tapes, albums or radio broadcasts, same as shows to VCR's for that matter. The tape was blamed for record sales losses and all other sorts of evil.
Copying LP vinyl to cassette was a big thing in the 70's and early 80's.
