Do you allow the government to determine your ethics?
The question evolved as I started on my third petite croissant (these things are addictive!) and became half about ethics, and half about legality.
I already know what I'm going to do while I'm here in France. I'm going to eat way too many mini-cheesecakes and tarte pecans, put on 10 pounds, and buy my ebooks from Amazon. When I finally tear myself away from the food, I'll probably poke through the British Public Domain options and pick a few choice titles just to have them as souvenirs.
I'm just asking what other people think, as a way to spur discussion.
