This seems more a recommendation of Laws/Rules/regulations, BEFORE we will do anything Bill..
It would be interesting to compare, WHO/WHAT corps OWN what around the world, With what Countries have been FIGHTING these corps for years, with OLD laws they dont wish to change..
MOST of this, is the idea that a Maker makes Music, a CORP takes all responsibility from the maker, gives back LITTLE compared to its profits, and when the maker DIES, they STILL OWN IT... Unless an ARTIST READS/Understands the contracts HE SIGNS..HE has few if any rights. If he DOES NOT, stipulate that UPON HIS DEATH, ALL RIGHTS GOTO HIS FAMILY...The family WONT get anything..
REALLY suggest everyone look up the PAST history of Movie/Music contracts BEFORE the 60's...Its @#$@# SCARY..
So.. SOMEHOW, you figure a way to STOP them You find a way that Any terrorist, or Soon to be terrorist, can not install and run anything that can use the internet.. Cyber cafe, any laptop(or friends/family laptop), Cellphone(friends/families Cellphone), Tablets, and any other way they can FIND.. So, you are going to SHUT DOWN whole nations that have Terrorists..(thats one way, and I dont know many others that WORK)
Oh!! Perchance...is there a Program that would Link to LOCAL hardware, and send messages, directly to devices.. Phone1-to Phone 2..Phone 2 to phone 3...Phone 3, to Tablet 4.. Could someone setup THERE OWN wireless setup on a computer, and send Messages to ONLY certain phones and devices as they travel Near the computer.. Could all of this be used WHILE people are going to work and school and ANY public event..and a Traveler, by Train/plane or Auto, could get this data sent to other locations VERY easily..
Could any of this be encoded??
Could a SMALL hack, be inserted into peoples devices, phones, computers that would allow this in the Background on ANY DEVICE...
Yes, Yes, yes , yes...
So with all of this..all you end up doing is SLOWING things down, a small amount..And you have FORCED the terrorists to become MORE knowledgeable..
This is funny.. as Long ago, police would monitor NEWSPAPERS for illicit activities..Prostitutes.. Then we had the internet, and Police and newspaper became concerned..and complained.. WHY??? They had a new resource and could SEE what was happening and WHERE.. If you STOPPED them using the paper or the NET, HOW would you monitor it?
WHY force things UNDER GROUND...when you can sit on a computer and WATCH things happen, and Locate people...
In a PERFECT world of Corporate mentality.. IF everything was protected and NOTHING was lost.. What would they complain about? They WOULD find something..Like ALL SOUND is Copy written, as its ALL been recorded before, or will be in the future.. Every Video/audio recording is Copy protected, BY THEM, including all Policing Agency's.. Everyone has to PAY to get it back or to USE IT..
Got a Family Photo..we CP that.. God, its getting stupid down here, Take me away..
Its that you can BUILD anything personally... The problem comes in 2 forms.. 1. Is a CHIP protected if you create something with it? 2/ Do you think buying a few chips at RETAIL is cheap?
ITS getting Bad enough... that if you create something with 1 format, and the DESIGN/SHAPE/FUNCTION/.. was copy written, Under another format.. Lets say Pudding.. You make it by Beating it with a spoon..but the CP has it beaten by a Mechanical beater.. YOU will be Sued..by the Corp, to disprove the allegation..and then it will be found that Either method is CP..
This has to go in the same problem with recent Trade agreements.. The BIGGEST problem here is OTHER countries agreeing to it. Its not a Company suing a company, and debating WHO had the idea first. Its Corps suing States, and countries..
Then comes the idea of a small country TRYING to defend itself, over something that created Long ago, and a Company suing them because they want it/Think they created it.
Then the Idea that you created something Long ago, then updated the design over time, because of New tech that made things easier...from resisters to chips.
How much money would you save on a CAR, if all the CP parts were in the public domain? HOw much would you save on cellphones if the 300 CP Dropped???(yes there are over 300 Copy right claims on Every cellphone..from Chips to Design to Programming...)
Love the old TV shows and some of the Things from the past.. They past a law that stated the Only reason for a Corp, was to make money for itself. It has no responsibility for Anything/anyone else, except itself.
Then we watch movies that ALMOST always have a nice ending, and cartoons that have little REALITY, as GI Joe and Cobra NEVER DIED...
The Good GUY always wins...the Good guy always gets the GIRL...
And the Scariest thing out there, in Sci-fi...Would be if we could READ each other minds. Truth and Justice...And knowing EVERYTHING a person has Done/DID and if they are TRYING to confuse/bother/Lie/steal...
would love TO,.... aDVERTISING/WORD OF MOUTH AND ALL OTHER KNOWLEDGE, means someone said something..
NO news is good news, isnt correct if you need People to goto an event.. I can see it NOW, all Airlines do NOT increase Flights to RIO..because they didnt HEAR about it..and Couldnt POST special sales and TIMES for it..because OLYMPICS is CP..
Anyone here, with abit of hardware knowledge from the last 30 years?? And abit of programming language, in HTML, GW basic, or any of the 20 Older languages USED?
TELL me how easy it would be to LOCK down a system.. Hardware and software..
Couldnt we just use an OLD 385/486(without all the current hardware spec).. And set it up REAL basic and simple.. Lock down all the ports. NO ACKNOWLEDGED Ports in OS software.. Master KEYLOCK on the case that will interrupt the computer and SHUT IT DOWN from any inputs..
There REALLY is bad news here, in that there are TO MANY PEOPLE willing to PAY to get a backdoor into these machines...
Dear China.. Politicians..I hope you will be responsible enough to HELP clean up everyone's computers when this is done..
Dear Citizens..Im sorry that idiots(same as ours) are trying to tell you how to protect your computers..Once your computers are Ridden with Virus and bots, Please send them to your local Political rep..SEE if he can fix it, as they FIXED this law..
