You could say that Anonymous, the cyber activism group, are synonymous with cyber attacks on international sites and speaking out against abuses of human rights. For instance, in February of this year a member of Anonymous posted the email addresses and passwords of of Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian President, his wife Asma al-Assad, and countless other senior figures in the regime. However this week the Japanese government, namely the Supreme Court and Finance Ministry, have reportedly come under cyber attack. According to AnonPR, a site that supposedly speaks on the group’s behalf, said that the attacks were due to the recent copyright laws passed in Japan:
Japan, home to some of the greatest technological innovations throughout history has now decided to go down the path as well and cave into the pressures of the content industry to combat piracy and copyright infringement. Earlier this week Japan approved an amendment to its copyright law, which will give authorities the right to imprison citizens for up to two years simply for downloading copyrighted material
We at Anonymous believe strongly that this will result in scores of unnecessary prison sentences to numerous innocent citizens while doing little to solve the underlying problem of legitimate copyright infringement.

Hacking gets a bad reputation and there is of course a good reason for that, but it’s not entirely true. Of course hacking has it’s negative sides I’m not going to try and argue that it doesn’t, but I think that to often those negatives are focused on to much despite their positives. So I hope to maybe spread the word that it’s not all bad and there are good things that come out of it.
Hacking tends to lead to piracy it’s a sad fact that I have to accept and I refuse to try and deny. People hack their Xbox or the Ps3 and the download pirated games burn them and play them with giving a cent to the company that made them. None of this is untrue so I refuse to deny it, but there is a lighter side to this.
