Take down stolen files (biggest cojones have to be to 'sharedtermpapers' who graciously allow authors to 'opt out' of having their ebooks shared--um, I am not 'opting out', I'm reminding you if you post someone's book to file-share it's THEFT and hell YES I will report you for allowing it), charge people for theft of intellectual property, prohibit transmission of privileged/classified documents? Absolutely.
Sometimes, I SOOOOO wish we had a "like" button!
