Political argument support
"Internet Piracy Boosts Anime Sales, Study Concludes"
Why the name "Pirate Party"?
"One million dollars for seven songs?!"
You may get the push back, "Well, Joel is a thief who should be punished." You could counter with, "Well if he *is* a thief, and he stole a CD from a store, which is say 12 songs, the most her would get is a $500 dollar fine and/or probation, right? So these MPAA and RIAA fines are absolutely ruinous, and hardly in the spirit of American justice." That can be a very disarming argument, as people tend to be very justice minded. Then you can proceed to make your point about sharing culture, etc.
