    Yeah, for sure

    In Portugal they want to pass a law that makes you pay a special tax when you buy any kind of device that permits you to store data (CDs, DVDs, hardrives or even cell phones) because it may be used to store illegally obtained content. So even if you just want to store the family photos you took on holiday on a CD, you'll still be paying the piracy tax. The way I see it, if I'm paying for it, you can be darn sure I'm going to be using torrent sites a lot more...

    Also, I'm blaming you.
