Just because an idea is poor doesn't mean it shouldn't be pursued to the fullest

Every time you think that perhaps the music industry has finally decided to quietly allow the idea of suing consumers to drop, it confounds you by showing that, no, it's going to push ahead, now adding Brazilians and Poles to the tiny fraction of a portion of a percentage of a sample of filesharers strong-armed by solicitors' letters.

The music world is puzzled that these actions don't seem to be educating filesharers out of their bad habits. Why won't they learn?

The wider world is equally puzzled that the failure of the profile-damaging and cash-sapping lawsuits at stopping the behaviour hasn't educated the record industry into abandoning the actions. Why won't they learn?
