Any time a person takes its own life, anger is around with sadness. I’m angry too and I share Lawrence Lessig’s thoughts:

This morning I was listening to a show in Italy a volunteer that talks to prisoners incarcerated into the horrible Italian jails. She mentioned a conversation with a man sentenced to six years for selling counterfeited CDs and DVDs on the streets. His words: “Six years! That’s too long”. We’re accepting that selling a song with no rights to do so is a crime worst than hitting a singer with a baseball bat. Our politicians should be ashamed.
