I'd suggest that in this metaphor the role of Palpatine would actually be taken not by the owner of the copyright, who already has legal recourses (by which argument Sielberg would represent a senator such as Organa) but a music publisher such as David Geffen who is seeking to expand their powers. The arguments have been not that illegal downloading should not be dealt with but that it should be dealt with by using the sanctions already enshrined in law.

(apologies if this in fact counts as an opinion; it's intended as a correction of the metaphor)
