    Meds for depression can be really difficult to get right. I know my sister went through a year of hell, including hospitalization for months, before she got better.

    So the real cause of his suicide is depression, and if he wasn't suffering from that, he very well might still be alive.

    I'm not saying there don't need to be some changes to the copyright laws and how they're enforced, but his prosecution can't be viewed as the underlying cause for this.

    A contributing factor, of course, but not the cause. His illness was the cause.
