Personaly I think many people miss the point.
It's not about theft, some HONEST bands in the uk have admitted pirated music sells about 15% more than non pirated stuff. No its not about theft,
its about control of information. When was the last time you heard a REAL protest song?
Remember what happened to Bob Marley "Get up, stand up for your rights"
or John Lennon "Give peace a chance. War is over"
No no no, its not about theft, its all about control.
UK visitors might remember the pirate radio ships Radio Caroline and Radio NorthSea International and what happened to them. For those that dont know
it was back in the 60's and Radio ships LEGALY anchored in international waters and broadcast music. For the first time british people were hearing
music form all over the world, especialy music from the US. For the first time in our lives we were free of the Blatently Biased Corporation (BBC), it
was an amazing time. BUT!!! The BBC started broacasting a jamming signal that caused an iritating whine when we listened to the pirates but we
continued to listen because even with the iritating noise it was better than the BBC.
So they blew them up. Attacked them at sea. Changed the laws and sued them in court. Then they employed all the DJ's from the pirate ships.
What did the pirates do wrong to attract so much attention? They promoted peace and love.
Not about theft, its all about control of what you can hear see or even feel.
Petitions. Waste of time but if you must then at least have the sense to all use THE SAME petition.
In the uk a few years back they tried to introduce PAY PER MILE charges on our roads and people went nuts and a website set up a petition. then
suddenly ALL the news papers each started a petition. When ever the msm reported how many people had signed the petition they told us the total of
just one petition.
Lots of petitions = divided and conquered.
oops I typed BBC, I wonder if thats copyright infringment
"Get up, stand up, stand up for your rights"
rip Bob Marley.
