[Techworld]New version of PROTECT IP may target legal sites - Page 2  

post #11 of 25
Thread Starter 
Maybe I'm thinking about something else but I heard the user would be help responsible from watching a video about this. Maybe the person didn't know what he was talking about.

I have often wondered about this topic. Hearing Gabe Newell talking about his version of combating priacy made much more sense to me than any of this: Provide a service that is better than that offered by the pirates.

I think the entertainment industry needs to evolve rather than try to stick in the past. It seems that they waste more energy, and money, trying to protect IP than they gain from the protection of it. Of course I'm sure they can produce figures to refute this, as others can produce figures to support it. Figures can say anything, I can produce figures to show that everyone in my department has 1.9 legs.

Digital downloads are a start, but why should I pay for one when I can watch the movie for free on YouTube? That is the question they need to answer; how to make people want to buy their services, not how to force them to. Admittedly not an easy task.


Just a quick tale from recent experience. I heard a few songs recently and thought they sounded good, so I looked them up on YouTube and sure enough there are the videos. After listening to them a few times I was hooked and have now bought a couple of their albums. The owners of that IP have ultimately made money from me initially stealing it then going back to buy it. I'm sure this happens often, so why not try to build a buisness model round it?

Incidentally the artist is called BreakBot, well worth a quick listen.

Don't forget cable companies. This would shut down their competition.

If they pass this then they should as well pass similar one - if you kill someone with a gun - the gun manufacturer will be responsible - not you.

But hey - this way they can sue both, the person that uploaded, and the website owner that has it

Hmm...If you kill someone with a baseball bat, it's now the manufacturers fault?

Excellent point and this can be seen with netflix streaming services and with on demand. I know several ppl that would stop pirating and start paying more if they would continue these services and make them more inclusive.

The rules are not changing, they are just adding more of them. If you upload protected material, you are still infringing by sharing if you do not have proper permission to do so. Luckily though when it comes to YouTube, most companies are not like the MAFIAA trying to sue everyone in existence, they just want their material to not be on YouTube to be available for free. The main reason I see why they are trying to put more responsibility on the host site is not primarily compensation of material, it is so that the said host site ends up having to do more policing/filtering of material which will save the IP owners time and money.

Most artists would still make millions without selling a single song. Actors make most of their money off of the theater right? I'm not like pro-pirating but I just see why people do it. No one who has a ton of money will do it.

A song should cost 10 cents. Artists make so much money touring and making appearances places such as clubs and television shows. I understand the physically media costing more but it is ridiculous and the penalties are nuts.

This is a disgusting example of overreach in legislation driven by industry. Industry basically wrote this bill and handed it to the rep who "authored" it, the fact that this bill has a good chance of passing shows just how much power content industry has in our government.
