2013 Illegal Downloader of the Year

Beyonce Knowles' latest is being illegally downloaded by the millions.

But that's nothing compared to the NSA.

Every bit of meta data they can grab around the world -- from cell phones, from laptops, from devices -- they're grabbing.

It's as though the US government really cracked down on Napster in 2001 because the NSA was jealous over its ability to share information.

Today, the NSA sucks up everything, the original blow job queen.

And then they lie about it.

The latest revelations of the spying are from Der Spiegel. RT notes:

The top secret unit has succeeded in gaining access to 258 targets in 89 countries. In 2010 alone, it conducted 279 global operations, according to the documents.
Der Spiegel reported that TAO specialists have directly accessed the protected networks of democratically elected leaders of different states. They infiltrated networks of European telecommunications companies and gained access to messages sent over Blackberry's BES email servers – which are considered to be securely encrypted.  

With one federal court declaring the actions of the NSA illegal and another saying the actions are legal, maybe the answer is to be thuggish like the RIAA?

Let's all slap copyrights on all of our electronic exchanges and then demand the NSA start paying us or be prosecuted for illegal downloading?
