So you are admitting that you are a liar?

I'll take your response as such. When confronted and asked to back up your statements,
you couldn't do so.

I think he's referring to this:
"But we know from America’s noble effort to stop child pornography, not to mention China’s ignoble effort to suppress online dissent, that it’s perfectly possible to track content."

If you did just read it (which I doubt) it was a virgin read.

So JA, the above quote is Bono saying we should be like China? Is that your position? Bono wants the world the be like China?

Is it just me or does it appear (not saying he's actually doing this) that Bono's defending the corporations and record companies,

He attacked ISPs. Who, are, ya know, GIANT MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS.

Ok look, i won't pretend to know much about internet piracy and the arguments for and against, and i'll admit i didn't really read the article completely through - however, his argument is about protecting a product that is being downloaded for free, and in turn implies a defence of the record companies, who i'm assuming are the ones who are losing the most money and are the most angry about money loss (i'm sure Bono's rich enough to not really care personally). However, yeah, he has also defended up and coming bands, who are really losing out because of this, so maybe his argument was fair enough.
But whether he's right or wrong is irrelevant (its not linear!). That's not what my post was really about. Its about what Bono's doing to u2's image. When he compares piracy to child pornography, or likens internet control to chinese oppression (whilst supporting the former), he's not gonna get people on his side, and its just another example of him saying something which will make people get angry at him, and make u2 more unpopular.

But why does U2 have to be liked? or popular?
