Romney joins the Pirate Party

It's not unusual for political candidates in the US to get themselves involved in copyright bother, but Mitt Romney is taking things to a new level.

This isn't the embarrassing tshirt using an uncleared font.

Oh, no.

Romney actually owned shares in one of the biggest dodgy video sites in all of the Internet, Youku.

Yes, having sent China so many American jobs, Romney also helped underwrite Chinese piracy.

If he does win in November, at least the RIAA and MPAA lobbyists will know Mitt understands how people make money from unlicenced online content.
