I think that as long as business and government do not eliminate freedom of choice (probably impossible unless all internet services cease first) that file-sharing of just about any content, along with social networking are inevitable (and who knows what additional means might develop in the future?) - there is too much brain p...

The biggest issue in my home country is that there are no real alternatives to file-sharing.
