When your paper came out and the copyright industry induced a hissy fit about it, I immediately contacted my (republican) representative and told them that the actions taken against you were unfair and uncalled for.
I indicated that many of your suggestions should be made law and that anyone opposing them would not get my vote (and yes my Rep. has previously gotten my vote, twice).
The Republican party could make great headway on this issue if they remembered that they should be the party advocating for limited involvement of the government in people's lives.
Re: And it could be soooo much more easier for Google
Yeah, because pissing off and ditching their customers and users on behalf of a whiny industry that feels itself entitled to, to put it bluntly, A POLICE STATE to make sure they get paid is a great idea.
I just want to cheer Google on as they move into more and more markets and DECIMATE the competition.
The cable and phone company ISPs have forgotten how to compete.
All I want is for Google to move Google Fiber into 10 or so major metropolitan areas and take 90% of the competitors business because they actually give a damn about the customer!!!
I love watching Time Warner cry for mommy government to come and save them because Google is taking their customers. Boo effin hoo.
The ISPs are trying to tell us that we need (even want WTF?) bandwidth caps. Then Google moves into KC with a service 1000% better than what the telcos and cable companies are offering. Its called COMPETITION assholes.
I don't care if Google can get this deployed nationwide. I just want them to HURT the other ISPs.
Isn't it telling that in today's day and age, in many industries, customers are forced to do business with companies that they hate and abhor.
But companies better beware because if a competitor comes in and actually is just plain marginally nice to the customer they will crush the incumbent monopolies.
No if Google will only start to move to becoming a wireless provider. ;-)
I predict the next silly lawsuit to come from this tattoo nonsense will involve a game developer deliberately changing a tattoo for an athlete's likeness in a game and being sued for defamation of character by not representing them correctly as they are in the game....
