Theeeres the magic sentence!

Also since when did the White House become the RIAA? What's with them getting their panties in a knot about streaming and such?

huh? handbrake is illegal? since when? as far as i know, it doesn't come with any anti-copy protection built in, it has to use other software to do that.

Such ignorant people on this site. How do you guys not understand that streaming stuff that is not allowed by the publisher of the material, is wrong?

What did they lose? And if it's streaming on the internet it's available on TV/Radio for free, but not on demand. If they made it available on demand (internet), throw in some ads (like TV/Radio), everyone wins.
Waiting for entertainment is what people did before the internet. : )
Before radio came out people had to listen to recordings and before that was an option they had to wait and see it live. Before the TV they'd have to go to a theatre and see it live or on an early projector, etc. Before the internet we would have to wait until the episode was re-aired or buy the whole season, etc etc etc...

Now i'm gonna pop some popcorn and watch whatever is on hulu or alluc.

The administration is proposing that if Homeland Security seizes circumvention devices, it be permitted to "inform rightholders," "provide samples of such devices," and assist "them in bringing civil actions."
WOW. Seriously? So we're going to waste tax dollars to benefit large corporations? Seriously? Does this make ANY sense to anyone?

There's a Mexican Meat Market down the street from me, selling boot legs of new releases on DVD. If the feds can't stop this dude, what hope do they have of ever doing it online?

Considering they only need walk down the street to arrest this guy, our poster has a point.

What do you mean by wrong here? If you mean legally wrong, it isn't (yet) or they wouldn't be discussing it. If you mean morally then how so? You show absolutely no justification whatsoever.

You said earlier that whoever creates something should be able to dictate how it is distributed and how much it costs, but why? If I cured cancer would you think its morally acceptable to only distribute it to say, only rich white people? Ok, maybe you can argue that that example is medicine and medicine should be treated differently (although I disagree with that too). I don't think it should be the decision of the creator, but people who actually understand the product.

Quote:
In 1905, 11-year old Frank Epperson tried making soda pop, then a popular drink, by mixing soda water powder and water. Accidentally, he left the soda out on his porch all night. Temperatures dropped so low that the next day, young Epperson found his soda pop had frozen with the stirring stick in it! He didn't know it then, but he had accidentally concocted the very first popsicle! It wasn't until 18 years later, in 1923, that Epperson remembered his invention, applied for a patent and started selling "Eppsicle" ice pops iin different fruit flavors.
Heres another example of someone who creates something who really has no idea what to do with it (hes 11 afterall). Notice how one person essentially invents something(popsicle), decides what to do with it (eat it and forget about it). Then, he grows up and essentially reinvents the popsicle but now realizes he should have been selling it all along!

What if hollywood does the same thing but instead of doing the greedy thing (greedily eating the popsicle only to forget about it) without realizing that there might be other, better things to do with their new creation, even if you're still thinking greedily (Just think about how many popsicles that guy can have now?) But if YOU were there, you would have told him "Its ok Frank, if you want to eat the popsicle and forget about it we can't say no.

Conclusion: I believe some "wrong" things are not always "wrong" and in the case of pirating, it is not ALWAYS wrong. (Obviously there are pirates out there who could easily afford to pay for entertainment but do not out of sheer greed).
