    Big Government

    Intellectual Property Rights - Just another example of BIG GOVERNMENT standing in the way of the FREE MARKET.

    "The government that governs least, governs best."

    Isn't that what we're told?

    "...I do know that plenty of people play knockoff stats, while stores sit full of new real strats that aren't being sold. That says a bunch."

    No it doesn't. There are plenty of people playing cheap Les Paul/SG copies too. All it says is that some people can't afford 'Real' Strats or 'Real' Les Pauls.

    "Linux is a great operating system, but it requires a level of technical ability and interest that most end users aren't going to want to spend."

    Poppycock! Modern Linux distros are no more technically difficult than Windows or Mac.

    Re: Re: This is what caught my eye

    "It becomes all about here and now, no a long term play but a short term game of produce, play, forget, move on."

    Are you kidding? That is exactly what the music industry has been about for, at least, the past 2 decades.

    "Hey, some band named 'Nickleback' just had a hit song...quick, find as many bands as you can that sound just like them. We'll have them record a bunch of mediocre tunes and flood the airwaves with them until people get sick of that sound, and then we'll move on to the next flavor of the month."

    There's always going to be a minority of exceptional artists, or else the wouldn't be exceptional, would they? But, now those artists don't need to make there music sound like the flavor of the month to be heard. No ones at the gate saying, "you don't sound like...so your music is never going to be distributed to the masses."
