Internet Piracy In Lebanon

KFC (4)“Piracy is a way of life in Lebanon” according to this article from Now Lebanon. New releases make it to the DVD player before the theater, illegal software is the norm. Only in Lebanon does the phrase “original copy” make any sense. As Lebanon waits for better internet, the rest of the world waits to see how Lebanon will further abuse the world wide web. We even wonder if our neighbor has pirated our electricity when the bill shows up. This report from Iranian-based PressTV explains Lebanon’s internet crisis. It seems Israeli piracy has created our problems. Just when you think it couldn’t get any worse, KFC has been taken over by pirates. What have they done with the chicken?
