I really agree with protecting our freedoms over this bil which would yet be another strick for big brother.
I just grow tired of the machine squeezing us for more and more money, over regulating us and looking out for the interest of speacial interests and
How many musicians for instnce havemade it big from the internet and p2p (peer 2 peer) networks. The problem being is that the network has not
evolved. Why would i buy a disc with 16 songs, 15 are crap, or the medium i have purchased is now obsolete so you make me buy it again. total bull
I admit i download movies and watch them, but if i like them i will buy them on dvd or blue ray.
The underlying problem is everyone claims that everything is their idea and they own it, so to not get lawsuit for copyright infringment of some sorts
they are making uch crap, it is smothering creativness and creative expression.
Like a product, Say bob has a wicked idea, works 10 times better than a existing product, last 20 times longer and is half the price, but he cant make
it and sell it with out getting suied. i agree to a point there should be some protection for a new idea for so many years, and like drugs from the
major phara comps, they should be open patiented then after like 5 years and see what people can do. Why do you think the gas car has lasted so long,
besies the fact they bought up or killed off anyone who thretened their stance on gas and oil dominance.
The fact of the mattr is this is just another stab at over all contol. With market shares shrinking to free services like you tube, they grow more
desperate to make ther bottom lines grow for stock holders. I dont feel bad for the britney spears and metallicas of the world, or the big corps.
Now if they could only feel like this and put the effort in helping average joe, we would have a great world, or stop the illegal porn and which
actually hurts someone, but see no one is loosing supposed money from it so it does not matter.
I say screw them, and if they bring this measure in, everyone cancel their cable, shut down their internet and stop renting and buying the videos, if
we loose interest in their crap, mayby they will realize they are where they are because we put them their. We can easily change the guards, weather
be ceos or governemens, being legal or revolutionary. The ultamit question, where do you stand and are you willing to fight for what is right? Or will
you just bitch about it but go along like sheep. Our ancestors would feel shame. For if it wasnt for blod shed for freedom, we would still be
controlled colonys of kings and queens and probably all live in poverty, hey wait thats sounding more like today than anything.
