I would say the Internet does benefit from a lack of strict controls over such things.
If Ebay had to implement strict controls over listings, the cost of monitoring and policing them would surely be passed on to the user. So even though I couldn't care less about Tiffany's handbags, I would be paying more for all auctions.
If your closing argument is to draw a parallel with the freetard justification for music piracy, I doubt there's much reasoning with you.
If your closing argument is an appeal to ridicule and an argument from fallacy, then I am lol at my desk.
Edit: You also set up a straw man as I never did 'draw a parallel', I only posed a question. Nice going, maybe you should try a career as a tabloid journalist.
