Vote? Let's know RB's reasons behind banning countries 1st!

Several friends have sent me links to VOTE HERE on the pretty much unknown situation regarding the Bub locking out some countries from RB Membership.
From one I recieve the following Links:
VOTE HERE
IF YOU LIKE TO READ MORE ABOUT THE ISSUE
If you ‘dnot’ know how the voting system works (Typos original to note.)
I’m not necessarily backing RB up, esp regarding Israel: I just want to know what they that own the Bub are thinking.

I went, I read, I said:
My only guess on this is that RB banned the countries that officially don’t regard copyright laws.
Music and movie piracy, practiced legally in many countries, wouldn’t tickle the Bub’s fancy at all. There’s no reason not to practice art piracy where it’s legal, too. Other countries may not be able to control the piracy going on within its borders. This is the only reason I can think that they might do this. It surely has to be resolved, but I, personally, don’t want my work, such as it is, to be pirated. I see it as a moral as well as a financial problem that’s showing no signs of reduction. As long as countries percieve themselves above moral and legal issues, I wouldn’t want to trade with them in general. Taking it person by person, which is pretty much impossible, but how I’d like it to be done, is what I would prefer.
Another point: The Bub might have been urged to abide by diplomatic or international trade recommendations. Or demands.
If the above are not RB’s resoning for banning countries, and if the are indeed going by the owners’ of the Bub’s political, personal, or religous considerations, then it stinks to the high heavens.
I recommend we ask, before we vote.

Artist's Description

I got asked to vote in something I know nothing about today. Not being a fan of Chicken Little, I’d like to know more from RB before I make a voting decision.
So, please let us know, Powers that Be! We really need to know!
