This is like the Russian MP3 sites where anyone can legally DL a song for 10 cents I'd figure....
I wonder if they'll have cracks and keygens along with the Warez they'll be selling... and what does that mean to a
US buyer whom legally purchased the software from the Aniguan government?
Interesting stuff LOL
The Government of Antigua is planning to launch a website selling movies, music and software, without paying U.S.
copyright holders. The Caribbean island is taking the unprecedented step because the United States refuses to lift a
trade "blockade" preventing the island from offering Internet gambling services, despite several WTO decisions in
Antigua's favor. The country now hopes to recoup some of the lost income through a WTO approved "warez" site.
That is freakin' hilarious. Apparently, the US goes not control the
WTO like it does the UN Security Council.
