    Piratory Rape
    Project: The Total Library

    Government corruption has gone too far and crossed the line in how it openly allows a whole category of rapists to escape the official sex offenders list and the obligations to society that come with it like announcing yourself as being on that list when you move into an apartment or get a job. But before we get into that, what is Piratory Rape?

    In general, Rape is defined as sex without Consent.

    Legally, "Consent" is defined differently than "permission" or "choice".

    Statutory Rape is sex with a person who, because of their young age, can not legally Consent to sex. Statutory Rape is legally a type of Rape.

    There are many kinds of Rape.

    Piratory Rape is most similar to Statutory Rape because it is sex between people who can not legally Consent to the specific acts of sex.

    They can not legally Consent to any Copyrighted sequence of sexual positions without permission from the Copyright owner.

    For example, renting a pornographic video, which are usually Copyrighted, and reproducing a big enough part of the video in a private bedroom, is violating the Copyright owned on that specific combination of sexual acts, for the same reason music Piracy in a private bedroom is still Piracy.
    "Copyright is a legal concept, enacted by most governments, giving the creator of an original work exclusive rights to it, usually for a limited time. Generally, it is "the right to copy", but also gives the copyright holder the right to be credited for the work, to determine who may adapt the work to other forms, who may perform the work, who may financially benefit from it, and other, related rights. It is an intellectual property form (like the patent, the trademark, and the trade secret) applicable to any expressible form of an idea or information that is substantive and discrete."

    Everything that can be copyrighted is legally considered to be copyrighted simply by creating it. Sending a copy to an official Copyright office can help prove who created something, but its not necessary for the thing to be Copyrighted.

    When a porno is sold or rented to horny people, the video and specific combination of acts in it and possibly other things are Copyrighted. Those things are allowed to be displayed on an audio/video device by the horny people, but reproducing them in any other way without permission is violating the Copyright for the same reason acting out a play or movie script without permission is a violation of Copyright.

    If you act out big enough parts of what you see in a porno without permission, or if you create pornos that violate the Copyright of other pornos by too closely duplicating their sexual acts, then you and/or your sexual partner(s) are a Piratory Rapist because you could not legally Consent to those sexual acts.

    In our world of extremely complex laws, Piracy is becoming a more serious crime. The Internet is being censored because people who own many Copyrights want to censor the legitimate activities of many people, by blocking access to parts of the Internet which some criminals use but there are also many legal uses of it, because it makes it easier for them to also censor Piracy of music and other valuable content. What's next, censoring and regulating games to make sure nobody plays the game the same way as anyone else who records such playing in a Copyrighted way? As a software professional, I know it can be done, but it shouldn't be done. As evidence that intellectual property laws have gone too far, consider how many of your friends are Piratory Rapists.

    I have nothing against people earning money from their books; that’s how I make my living.
    But look at what’s happening now. Stop Online Piracy Act (S.O.P.A) may disrupt internet. This is a REAL DANGER, not only for Americans, but for all of us, as the law – if approved – will affect the whole planet.

    And how do I feel about this?
    As an author, I should be defending ‘intellectual property’, but I’m not.

    Pirates of the world, unite and pirate everything I’ve ever written!

    The good old days, when each idea had an owner, are gone forever.
    First, because all anyone ever does is recycle the same four themes: a love story between two people, a love triangle, the struggle for power, and the story of a journey.
    Second, because all writers want what they write to be read, whether in a newspaper, blog, pamphlet, or on a wall.

    The more often we hear a song on the radio, the keener we are to buy the CD. It’s the same with literature.

    The more people ‘pirate’ a book, the better. If they like the beginning, they’ll buy the whole book the next day, because there’s nothing more tiring than reading long screeds of text on a computer screen..

    Maybe we should get some kind of global organization started where identity is certified somehow thats legally binding (not sure how to do this part) for the person to give away everything they've ever written. I've been writing it below some things I write on various websites.

    The best way to fight "Stop Online Piracy Act (S.O.P.A)" and similar laws is to spread the word about how rediculous the whole system is that it can be used to derive the fact that Piratory Rape is a real kind of Rape. You can't legally Consent to Piracy like an underage person can't legally Consent to sex, and acting out what you see in a Copyrighted porno without permission is Piracy, so its Piratory Rape.
