Do as we say...not as we do

It isn't our property, so that makes it okay to steal it. Worked for Sony, so it is good enough for the MPAA.

Both of the **AA's need to figure out that they need a new electronic method of delivery that is easy to use, cost effective for the users, and not tied down to the machine you use to download it.

Yes they can make money from the PSP, DVD, HD-DVD, and Bluray versions, but think how much more you could sell if everyone only had to buy it once. How about personal licensing, something along the lines of Steam. What you buy you can access from anywhere with your user name and password.

Re: Do as we say...not as we do

That's why I only buy CDs. I can then move the song into a form I can use. They can stick all their "electronic" locked to one machine" crap back up into that dark place it came from.

I also can later "sell" or "give" the used CD to a store/friend and recoup some of my dollars if I tire of the artist or hate the music.

There is no present method of transferring an electronic track from person to person or machine to machine, outside of the physical plastic CD. Much less "sell" the used electronic tracks. So why buy the songs in that format at a quality below what I want. I don't NEED to have every new CD that comes out. Buying the plastic CD gives me the ability to transfer the ownership of the songs to a 2nd party.

I hope the RIAA starves and goes the way of the Dinosaurs (that didn't adapt to changes) in their environment!

Can't apply that to DVDs or HD DVD/Blu-ray.
Decryption is illegal!
You can only play the item, you cannot back it up to protect your investment from getting damaged! That is illegal!
Damaged to the point of not working? Tough shit! Go buy another copy!

Yeah yeah, *I* can copy them...

EDIT: Typo.

Re: Do as we say...not as we do

Its a proven fact you could make money selling entire CD's for 2 to 3 bucks ask allofmp3(they paid the fucking Roms and the riaa refused to take it so stfu anti-pirate guys).Now to the point why don't the record industry do the same thing.IM not talking full price for some iTunes 128 bit Garbage im talking your choice from 128(very low price) to lossless(High price).Why am i going to go on iTunes and pay full price for 128 bit when i can go to Best buy or were ever and buy the Cd at the same price and rip it to whatever i want without that stupid DRM.There is a ton of money to be made if they(riaa/mpaa) ever get there head out of there collective ass and look.

Movies aside, some games DO allow you to make back up copies to keep them same.

But these days I buy online/download about 80% of my games (steam direct2drive etc).

Back to original topic:
I laughed so hard at this. I especially love the fact they ignored all attempts to contact them. That's just great. It reminds me of a parent screaming at a kid "JUST DO WHAT I SAY NOT WHAT I DO!"

So far we have a claim that the MPAA violated the GNU GPL license. The MPAA disputes this : »mjg59.livejournal.com/78590.html···comments

Look for the toolkit to reappear after the MPAA disputes the takedown notice.

Who says they will beat the takedown notice?

The MPAA violated the rules. Just because they say they didn;t doesn't make them right.

It is just like you who say ALL P2P traffic is illegal.
