I am a firm Supporter of being able to Sell off the things I have bought should I feel doing so.And I am also a Proud Dinosaur who owns no DRM/Digital File Stuff.I have lots of physical things here which are cool.1500 Books..lots of Rarities including 303 Vintage Pulp Magazines, Music Vinyl,Cassette,CD.........Games........Films on DVD/Blu-Ray.
I do love to own what I Buy and I do enjoy knowing that what I keep to my Grave will in fact be Willed to my Heir.
I am in the Driver's Seat ! Lovin It.
I have a huge Library of physical Books which I collect and have been doing this since 1968.
I admit it.........I am a proud Dinosaur who owns no Digital Files at all but only physical.
My Treasured Copy of 1984 is the 1952 published Signet Classics No.798 version which has the lurid pulp art cover.

Here's Hoping it happens ! At this point now that the Cat is coming out of the Bag I would like to see the same thing happen to the other side.Now we on Techdirt have long known about this Issue of Tech and Spying, ETC but now the story is all over the World in regular mainstream News.I know I warned people for years now and I bet others here on Techdirt tried to do the same.
Now, I do feel that the Tables should be turned and if I do see the US Gov hacked and cracked it will be Justice and we will see how they spied on us and how they spied on us, ETC.
I do love our Nation but I also love our Constitution and our supposed Freedom.
I am 57 and we played lots of Cops and Robbers, Army Men making War, or Cowboys and Indians.We all had tons of fun making believe and playing in the Woods.
We all grew up and none of us thought of killing and hurting people.
And I still like to fool around and play some Games.Love playing Mass Effect and also playing those 1ST Person WW2 Shooters.
Viva Le Revolution ! Apple should pull out of France and see what that action does.I am thinking that with the amount of people buying these Apple Ipads, ETC a move like that will open the Common Frenchman's Eyes.
Maybe....Maybe not ?
I would not go near one of these even if you Paid my Monthly Bills for a lifetime.
I will stay on a PC and do what Gaming I do that way.I will Purchase a physical Copy or none at all.And I will use my sources to find a Crack for the Game which defeats the DRM BS.
Many bad Laws start with the standard "Please Save the Children (insert more here) or the newer "Fight the Cyberwhatever (insert fear monger line here) .
