Swedish anti-piracy TV program grossly simplifies issue to scare kids

Don’t you know that for every song or movie you download from ThePirateBay, you single handedly cause the untimely death of an artist?

There’s an informative kids TV program being shown in Sweden, home of TPB, that shows a classroom being scolded for downloading left, right and center. “Artists want to get paid,” says the man behind the curtain, “and every time you download, that artist doesn’t get paid.”

I guess it’s easier to tell kids they’re “bad” than explain to them the complexities of the parasitic artist-label relationship.
