You don't knowa lot of Spanish readers, do you?

I don't know, but there are not only the rich countries. According to one source there are countries where more ereaders are sold than ebooks.
What seems a reasonable price say in the US, is outrageous someplace else.
Consequently there will be two markets of considerable size: an official and a piracy one ...

Criminal conspiracy and speech is far more complicated than that.
Look at just one facet.

If I stand on my soap box in the street and say "kill someone" or "rob someone" or likewise go on line and say that, well there is no conspiracy. No secret. I might be crazy or stupid, and I may have some criminal intent, but I am not involved in a conspiracy from what I have said. I am being pretty open and forthright. Of course there could be a conspiracy about something else.

That is just one facet.

But you are, in the UK at least, guilty of the very serious offence of incitement to commit murder (or robbery). I really wouldn't recommend doing that!

In the US, as long as you are saying those things should br done to ordinary people engaged in running businesses, then we call you an "occupier" and allow you to ignore public health ordinances and permit requirements. YouTube postings of your violent rants will be popular, and you will be lauded in the press.

I hate you all and I wish for all of you to die ...
while I still can use my free speech. Or is this kind of wishing already illegal online ?

Aha, nobody dares reply to my previous post. That's cause you are all dead scared of my threat. Ooooh I'm dangerous baby !
While we're at it, hand out your wallets and don't try anything funny, cause I'm dangerous and stuff

You don't pull the mask off that ol' Lone Ranger...

I'm not a lawyer, so don't rely on this... As long as you aren't directly inciting others to kill and not presenting a credible threat to anyone's life, I suspect that THEY won't track you down. Might not be a good idea to start mentioning the POTUS (or Big Cheese of whatever country you might be in) in such wishes, however.
