Olympic Scofflaws Break the Law

We all hoped everyone would follow the law, but the unfortunate events of today have left VANOC dealing with a worst-case scenario. Yes, it's happened: The Olympic Opening Ceremonies have been pirated on the internet.

Found using Google: download the Olympic Opening Ceremonies

From an interesting article today on Torrentfreak:
Most of the downloaders are from host country Canada...

It is expected that the International Olympic Committee will be outraged over this massive rights violation. In 2008 they urged Sweden to take action against the Pirate Bay over the Olympic torrents that they hosted, without result...
It seems you can't use a piece of tape to cover the Internet, leaving many Canadians cheering "Go Canada Go Download!"
