I've been saying this about youtube for a couple of months. For three years I've had no problem whatsoever loading youtube vids. Then it suddenly started doing the stop and start crap. Honestly, I already had the notion that youtube was doing it deliberately so they could advertise no slow downs for $20 per month. The day they do this is the day I look somewhere else.
Antigua is seeking permission to run a website that sells music, movies and software - but ignores copyright law.
The Caribbean island is due to appear before the World Trade Organization (WTO) on 28 January seeking permission to run the site.
The decision to set up the site is the end point of a long-running dispute with the US over gambling.
Well this seems very interesting and couldn't find anything in a search. It seems when the US banned our citizens from gambling through Antigua-based websites their government filed with the WTO and they agreed.
The WTO agreed with Antigua and dismissed a US appeal against its ruling. However, because the US took no action to lift the controls on cross-border gambling Antigua filed an application to recoup its lost cash by other means.

Luckily I grew up in a country where television was free. You pay to buy a tv set, or even build your own tv set if you're a mad scientist, and plug it in.
Information traveling over the air - for free!! Imagine that.
And the commercials were perfectly timed for a quick nip out to the loo, or to make a cup of coffee.
