Too Much Free Time

But... But... Piracy...

from the just-having-some-fun dept

You've probably seen those XtraNormal videos going around these days, where you type out a script and some text-to-speech software and animation software create a short video. I thought it might be fun to experiment with this to see what came of it. Here's my first attempt at a short video that I call "But... But... Piracy."
Yes, some of the dialog is silly, but all of it is based on claims that I've seen people actually use in these discussions.

    I've been reading TD for some years now, and I can't' say I've found Mike to be a 'more government...except for copyrights!' promoter. More like a 'we need better/smarter/realistic law, not necessarily more law' type of mindset underneath an arch of 'stop crying and start working if you wanna make a buck these days' - adapt or die, in other words.

    That's not a catch phrase that applies only to copyright/patent situations, btw. Nor just business.
