Free porn: Did you know it's illegal?

Remember when Napster first came out, and people were downloading 3,000 songs a day? Then the government started suing 72-year old ladies for downloading a bunch of oldies, and everyone freaked out?

You couldn't download a song without someone saying, "Be careful, my cousin's friend got nailed for $8,000 in illegal downloads."

It's interesting that the government has never taken such aggressive measures with free porn. While I doubt (pray) that no one is downloading 3,000 files of porno a day, I have to imagine that most porn purveyors do not pay for content.

The porn industry feels the same way, apparently. And recently, it felt the best way to encourage people to stop pirating porno was not to sue them, but to tug at the ol' heart strings a little bit.

With a public service announcement.

While this isn't exactly Sarah McLachlan and the ASPCA, I did almost tear up.

Here's my review of it . . .

(and the whole thing here)
