LimeWire has gotten really good. I’m using it to pirate music (that’s right) and I get reliable and fast downloads almost every time I go to grab a file. Cool. [Jeremiah’s Radio Weblog]

I sure hope Jeremiah doesn’t mean to imply that sharing things with other people is the moral equivalent of attacking a ship. He probably didn’t even think about what it meant to call it that. It’s the same thing with “intellectual property” — the copyright, patent and trademark laws are completely different than property law, and calling them by the same name only confuses the issue.

Unfortunately with media conglomerates that own the TV stations, music companies and major websites wanting to encourage the use of these words, we end up with shades of Newspeak.
