ISPs are currently preparing to start with the so called ’six strikes’ anti-piracy measure. This means that ISPs will send six warnings to users who download or share copyright software, video and audio. Those who receive a 5th of 6th warning will first need to complete an online educational tutorial on copyright before they are able to normally access other pages again.
Exactly whom is going to decide what is copywrited and how?
My Mom was visiting me over the holiday week. She asked about ten times for me to take her to the movies. I flat out refused, I have no desire to pay $12.00 a ticket to sit in a theater with a room full of inconsiderate corksuckers, talking on the phone, each other, yelling back at the screen, discussing the story line, daring anyone to ask them to be quite. Or that special young 6'11" lady that always has to sit in front of me with a bee hive hair do. Then I can't remember the last time I went to see a movie and was truly entertained for the money I spent.
If they made just a little concerted effort to produce movie people might actually want to see, perhaps they wouldn't have to suck the fun out of the internet. `
As for music, I still don't have a MP3 player, well I have several I'm sure, I just don't care for MP3 quality so I don't listen to them. Nor was I ever a fan of CD quality. Perhaps one day we'll get 24bit 196hz HD audio.
But for now, I'll stick with vinyl.
