Maybe its the trend of making kids responsible for their actions prematurely.<br />
<br />
Or it could be the "Lets give kids awards for nothing so they feel good about themselfs" trend<br />
<br />
and this:<br />

I totally missed that. I now see thats how a lot of things are down here in southern california. The dwindling group of baby boomers and the fast growing generation X with children tend to be progressive and agressive about so many things here in California. Unfortunately, it often involves their children

"Are children are not taught, they are indoctrinated."<br />

Another good point in favor of home schooling.

When CDs and DVDs (movies) cost under $5 I'll consider buying them, until then Bit Torrent is my friend. The only movies or CDs I buy in stores are truly exceptional in my opinion, for instance the only CD I've bought from a store this year (I've bought plenty of music from iTunes and sincerely wish I hadn't with all the DRM crap they put on there it's like they're trying to encourage pirates lol) was Iron Maiden's A Matter of Life and Death and that was only because I love Iron Maiden to death and back. When an artist or film producer goes to great lengths to make truly exceptional work I reward it with my money. Not saying that's legal or even necessarily right, but that's how I roll I guess.

The badge isn't even about copyright in general - it's all about copyright infringement. They don't touch fair use or anything like that - it's all P2P and propaganda such

nice one waza. Wow that's just plain sad i think that the mpaa has to go to such lows as to teach children about copy right. This is just a crime. And plus if anyone listens to the BUZZ out LOUD podcast "cnet's podcast" then they where saying that there has been a new trend in patenting now people are trying to patent cloths designs, food, etc.........

This is so wrong in so many ways.<br><br>
This is what is happening to us: Corporations want to privatize our minds. You may ask, what does this mean Franken? It means they want to hold the copyright on your brain and control all aspects of what goes in and out.<br><br>
Now, they are not there YET. But, that is the ultimate goal. Feel free to laugh at my apparent paranoia. But, 10 years from now, the thought police WILL be watching you.

Everyone needs to be careful and choose their words carefully in this thread........just saying.<br />
<br />
<br />
As for the MPAA.....they wield the lobbyist power enough to made a number illegal......I think that says it all.......<br />

<br />
So, will the Boy Scouts be kicking down my door to search for illegal media? Can I sue them for breaching my constitutional rights?<br />
<br />
It's a sad day when a group designed around friendship and personal achievement become shills for the corporate world.......
