Happy New Year

This blog has now been in operation for one year. What began as an attempt to remain industry current on all the developments in the law relating to internet television has now become more of an outlet for my thoughts on the things that most interest me about the amazing developments that the internet has brought. Whether these developments are wonderful (new worlds of entertainment) or terrible (the increase in governmental desire to censor and control) they are always compelling. My new year's resolution will be to be a better poster here.

For this first post of the new year, nay the new decade, I have decided to post a link to an article on TorrentFreak. It lists the top 10 most pirated TV-shows of 2009. Enjoy!
