En France, quelques lois et censures, liberticides, puritaines et hypocrites (liberté de partage culturel sur le net, affiches de films interdites....) commencent à se pointer insidieusement. Ouvrons l’œil et restons vigilant, surtout quand on entend les propos faux-culs et mercantiles que tiennent les artistes soit-disant engagés, à savoir qu'ils sont contre le téléchargement gratuit, alors que ça permet juste à 100 fois plus de gens d'écouter leur musique, de voir leur film, du moins d'y avoir accès (vu les tarifs pratiqués), on peut se dire qu'on est pas sortis de la berge ;)))
