Simply put

Rick Falkvinge lifts a quote from ChrisK that provides a pithy comment on the current state of affairs....

"Sometimes I take a step backwards and think (it doesn't happen so often). But how did we even arrive in the situation where freedom of expression and freedom of information is put in the balance with something so banal as copyright? They are not even playing in the same league - more than that, they're completely different sports. And poker sites? Wtf!!
Three of four (Swedish) constitutional laws are about freedom of expression and freedom of the press. Since when did offended copyright holders and gaming monopolies have anything at all do do with it?"

(My translation.. which is of course a derivative work that I should have asked permission for...?!)
