It seems that Canada, the U.K., Australia (to a small degree), and the U.S. often share a degree of laws. They seem to take turns on giving precedent
for new laws.
It might be that the U.S. will follow though in a way I sort of doubt it will happen. Now I could see the U.S. moving to a flat rate fine instead of
allowing it to go to court for outrageous amounts. I find this more likely since so many of the big entertainment companies have much of congress in
The greed of the entertainment business is enormous unending and will be their ultimate downfall. An example of this is yearly Viacom insists on
wanting to raise their rates to providers in turn raising the rates to the viewer. Yet Viacom still puts out the same stuff showing rerun after rerun
(yes we watch SpongeBob here
). If they want a raise they need to start providing a better service. Just like in a normal job if you want a
raise work harder to show you are worth the raise. You want to raise your rates provide a better service, if not screw off.
Anyway this is a very interesting thing to happen. I am rather surprised at this outcome.
