The next package is 18mbps down with a 50 GB cap...and unless you dish for their highest teired internet plan, you aren't going to get unmetered internet.

Knology has an unmetered variable speed plan as well. I ALWAYS get 30mb/s down even though it's supposed to be variable. I dropped down from gold because I couldn't keep below the cap. Just wait for Google fiber otherwise. They just installed in at my office in KCK and it's incredible.

You know, I wouldn't even have an issue with the 6 strikes plan if it weren't sooooooooo.....stupid.

Here is how the law works. You have a group of people who claim that another group of people did something that has been determined as being illegal by the greater majority of the country, or other governing body.

That means that the music, movie, etc industry would have to file suit against an individual. To me, that is fine. If someone stole something of yours, you would probably prosecute who ever stole your stuff.

But with this nonsense, the businesses are having the US government and other companies do the prosecuting for them. So not only do these companies leech off of the consumer and the artist as well, but now they are leeching off the government?

Screw them all. I hope people steel every penny the media industry is worth. Maybe once our corrupt media is dead, maybe we can have more intellectual and interesting music/movies/games and so on.

It won't be long before the government takes control of the internet. Well they are "now" i think..

I admit being an pirate a couple of years ago but i really felt "horrible" in the past and i'm glad i never pirated ever since again for couple years. I pay my way like the rest. Help your economy!

nope, its just that developers are lazy and wont even try to take advantage of higer spec'ed machines.

are you the CEO of ubisoft by chance??

It's strange to think with all the issue people have with the patenting of software, we'd have noticed that this copyright cucoomonga was not a better alternative. Just throwing that out there for thought provocation.

I mean a patent in the U.S. lasts for 15 years. A copyright lasts ninety-five. Plus there's the obvious difference between functional code and creative license. I pray that this will all be chalked up to the obsolescence of the legal system in the coming years.

Edit: Why do people intentionally sabotage these threads? Is it some kind of silencing tactic?

so... would they give someone a strike because they were downloading a massive encrypted file? I encrypt a lot of personal files, out of paranoia, that are sometimes several gigabytes and occasionally send them to other computers through cloud servers.

They can cause this whole 6 strikes thing requires no proof, you can literally receive a strike for anything. Is it likely you would? probably not.

Well, they might just assume you're using Mega.

Ok now you're losing points. First of all, what/who are you comparing? Secondly, 95 years for a copyright means whatever information contained in the article in question cannot be used freely for that amount of time, delaying progress. And claiming that any legal entity other than the governing body itself should be able to define the terms of doing business with it under force of law, effectively making that entity a governing body, makes you a shill. Dude was right.
I've repeatedly said what we have isn't perfect... It's just better than the opposite.

As for what I was comparing, take myself. I'm a game programmer. If my work was suddenly completely unprotected, my companies profits would go down and I'd either be forced into a pay cut or I'd lose my job altogether. With my skillset, I'm perfectly capable of going to work with a Fortune 500 company creating analytical software. Even if that software wasn't protected, I'd still demand good wages because accuracy would be valued over everything else. Without copyright protection, video game production would be reduced to a few independent devs and a bunch of hobbyists.

The 95 years has always been excessive and is a relic from before Moore's Law became a reality. Patent laws are absurdly broad - see: rounded corners. As for TOS agreements, you do have the option to say no. Agreeing to it gives them that power, not them writing it. If you've got a coupon for an item that makes it free, you can't simply pick up the item, set down the coupon in its place, and walk out of the store. McDonald's isn't a governing body because they've got No Shoes, No Shirt, No Service on their door (interesting thought, anyone ever tried walking in wearing only shoes and a shirt?).

And Art, they can very clearly see where you're downloading from, I'd just avoid using Mega and you'll be fine.

Can they still see if I use HTTPS? I've always wondered how secure that really was.

See the connection, yes. Your computer sent the message through their server of "show me https://....". Decipher the data? Usually, but if it's encrypted behind the HTTPS encryption you have to really, really want to know what's in it to bother trying.
