If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever.

Not sure I'm buying your metaphor here.

"1984" is a novel about the loss of identity, privacy and basic human rights in a dystopian dictatorship.

I understand the first and the third panel in that context. I, however, can't see why you included the second panel. Was it your intention to portray illegal downloading of copyrighted material as akin to freedom of speech? Is being cheap a basic human right?

I have to admit the original context was not 1984. It only came to me at the time of posting. And it added a dramatic effect stronger than I wanted.

I think the internet made the record industry obsolete. Art can now go directly from artists to the audience without the need of an intermediate looking for profit. The industry, annoyed with this fact, has been pressuring governments to protect them by using invasive methods (as they use to tackle potential terrorists).

Looking at the evolution of things one might fear access to free information will be banned, just to be on the safe side. In a hyperbolic way, of course.
